The pylori of La Sarraz

On Mainstreet (Grand-Rue), just in front of the temple, there is a bourgeois mansion (built before the 17th century) in which stands the last pillory of western Switzerland. a Pillory is a place of torture in which criminals, forgers and falsifiers of wine, oil or butter and even adulterous women were exposed to the sight of all and to popular vindictiveness.
In Switzerand, the practice of pillorying someone ended at the beginning of the 19th century.
