La Sarraz

La Sarraz and its medieval castle, which houses the Horse Museum, dominate wheat and colza fields in a vast plain. Nearby is situated the Middle of the World where the mythical Venoge river flows towards Lake Geneva.


Castle of La Sarraz

Perched on a rocky ridge, the small town La Sarraz (485 m) dominates a plain covered with wheat and colza fields opposite the snow-capped Alpine peaks.

It is located close to where the rivers separate: the waters of Nozon river flow to the North Sea and the Mediterranean as well. The point of separation is an old man-made deviation and has been baptized "Middle of the World". The River Venoge was celebrated in one of Jean Villars-Gilles's poems, which the inhabitants of the Lake Geneva Region know by heart.

Celebrations and weddings are still held in La Sarraz medieval castle, which was tastefully renovated. It also houses the Horse Museum, which was founded by horse lovers. The collection shows the history of the horse, horse-drawn carriages, and horses for the army, for sports or for arts.
