Palud square

In the centre of the square is the town’s oldest fountain, adorned with a statue representing justice. Close by, a clock presents the history of Vaud in animated scenes every hour from 9:00 to 19:00. On Wednesday and Saturday mornings this is the site of the country market, which also sets up shop in the neighbouring pedestrian streets. Every first Friday of the month, it plays host to a craft market. Typical cafes, boutiques and large, elegant shops complement what this high-class district, which is completely pedestrianised, has to offer.

La Cité

This is a quarter full of typical small bistros and craft shops. To the north of the Cité hill, at Place du Tunnel, avenue César-Roux avenue and Place de l’Ours, shops and quirky bistros cry out to be discovered. It is around the Cité hill, sculpted by the Flon and Louve rivers, that the mediaeval town grew. Its cobble-stoned pedestrian streets as well as its monuments, the Cathedral of Lausanne, the St-Maire Castle and the Old academy, bear witness to that.

Lausanne Cathedral

At the heart of the old town, the majestic Lausanne Cathedral overlooks the city. Seen as one of the most beautiful gothic art monuments in Europe, it attracts more than 400,000 visitors every year.

To go back to the origins of Jacot Haute Chocolaterie is to love the winding paths that lead to Noiraigue, facing the Creux-du-Van, a place of legends. Marcel Jacot, a baker and confectioner, created the family business there in 1949. Francis, his son, later developed the art of chocolate making.

As from the 1970s, Jacot Haute Chocolaterie formed a bond with watchmaking companies, that became his best customers, a loyalty that still holds true today. The personalisation of chocolates became the hallmark of the artisan from Val-de-Travers.

Grand crus, rare cacaos, local spirits, the range of Jacot Haute Chocolaterie is made without palm oil and the products are prepared, personalised and packed by hand.
