Culture/tourism
Aventicum and one of the most important archaeological sites in Switzerland. At the time of the Roman Empire, Aventicum was the capital of Helvetia since the year 15 BC to the third century. The medieval village was built in the late thirteenth century by the Bishops of Lausanne, overlords of the city, then transformed and expanded by the Bernese bailiffs. The castle is a witness to this rich past. Its portal and its facade is richly decorated, very representative of the Renaissance Switzerland style.
