It could hardly be more impressive: the monumental former abbey church, dating from the 11th century, that dominates the medieval centre of Payerne.
This is the largest Romanesque building in Switzerland, a prime example of Cluniac architecture, and the most important sight in a small town that is exceptionally rich in history. Throughout the year, the abbey and its museum stage important exhibitions of paintings, as well as a series of high-quality concerts.

Thanks to its position near Lake Neuchâtel and not far from the nature reserve of the Grande Cariçaie, Payerne also makes a good base for a host of excursions into nature. And anyone hungry after a day in the outdoors will enjoy the wonderful sausages made here that have become famous way beyond the ruins of the ancient town walls.
