Major Davel

Standing against the façade of Château Saint-Maire is the statue of Major Davel, one of the heroes of local history.
At the start of the 18th century, this Vaudois patriot attempted to liberate the region of Vaud, which at that time was held by the Bernese. Betrayed by his own people, he was executed in Vidy, on the shores of Lake Geneva.
