On the shores of beautiful Lake Geneva, I had the chance to visit Chillon Castle. I admit to getting slightly lost. It is big. There are lots of stairs and passageways. Even with a map and having learned orienteering with the Boy Scouts, I found myself seemingly going around in circles.
The highlight is certainly the underground area where prisoners were kept. The most well-known is that of the imprisonment of Francois Bonivard by the Duke of Savoy. The imprisonment was immortalized by Lord Byron, who made him the hero of his poem "The Prisoner of Chillon".
Below are pictures of the dungeon area and the view from same.
One of the outside courtyards above, and the guest quarters below.
All in all, lots to see in a very unusual setting, on day three.
