History of the castle


The castle of Aubonne was built in the 12th century, it was successively occupied by:

  • Aubonne House Lords
  • Savoy House
  • Grandson Lords
  • Gruyère county
  • Berne
  • Canton of Vaud
  • Municipality of Aubonne (since 1835)

The keep, built on a rectangular base, was transformed in the 17th century by its owner, the Frenchman Tavernier (1605-1689), into a round tower to remember his eastern stays. The foundations of the old keep at the base of the current tower can be seen.
