  • <p>Built in 1270, this is the only old convent established since 1260 that has survived.</p>

    Lake Geneva

  • <p>Lausanne, the second-largest city on Lake Geneva, combines a dynamic commercial town with the locality of a holiday resort. The capital of the canton of Vaud is also a lively university and convention town. Sports and culture are given a high profile in the Olympic capital.</p>


  • <p>As a symbol of municipal authority, the H&ocirc;tel de Ville (city hall) enjoys a strategic location opposite the picturesque Place de la Palud. This is undoubtedly Lausanne&rsquo;s most beautiful 17th century Baroque building. Its main fa&ccedil;ade with its detailed arrangement shows Bernese influences. Worthy of special attention are the bell tower, the sculptured portal, the wonderful gargoyles, the half hipped roof and picturesque decorations. In bygone days the arcades that open onto the square were the scene of public debate &ndash; now however they are home to exhibitions of all types. A romantic archway leads to the Place de la Louve.</p>
