Tavel House

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Tavel House

The Tavel House - Maison Tavel - is considered the most prominent example of Swiss medieval secular architecture. The building, destroyed by a fire in 1334, was rebuilt by the aristocratic Genevan family of Tavel, imparting it with characteristic features of a fortified urban castle. In 1963 the building became property of the municipality and underwent renovation. Today visitors are free to explore the Tavel House from the basement to the attic, viewing a variety of historical household artefacts: furniture, silverware, coins, etc., as well as drawings, etchings and photographs illustrating the history of the city and the everyday life of Genevans from the Middle Ages to the late 1800s.
