Pompaples

On the north-eastern edge of the district of Morges, leaning against the first slopes of the foothills of the Jura, the village of Pompaples spreads out on the slopes of the hills formed by the arrival of the Nozon river on the plain; Nozon which winds its way from the west through its gorges surmounted by cliffs.

The first historical traces of the village date back to 1049 with a mention of the name of "Pons Papuli", a bridge whose origin is still a bit of a mystery and which is explained either by the name of Papulus, a 6th century bishop, or by the neighbouring poplars (in Latin papuli).

Over time, the name evolved into Pompaploz in the 14th century, Pompapuli at the end of the 15th century. From its origins until the Revolution, the village was part of the Seigniory of La Sarraz. The rich history of the Hospital of Saint-Loup, founded by Pastor Germond, is also part of the village, and the Institution of the Deaconesses still contributes to making Pompaples one of the most feminine towns in the canton.
