Romont in brief

With many churches in the region and its Vitromusée, Romont has become the Swiss capital of stained-glass windows. Perched on a hilltop, the town boasts a long and distinguished history.

Founded in 1240 by Pierre II of Savoie, the city's name comes from the Latin rotundus mons - the round mount. Today, Romont is the capital of stained-glass windows. Surrounded by defensive walls, the city still retains a medieval feel. Dating from the 13th century, the Collegiate Church and the Fille-Dieu Cistercian Church in the quiet outside of the town are real gems.

You can find ancient and contemporary stained glass windows of great value in the region's holy sites. The Vitromusée - the Swiss stained glass window museum - is located inside Romont's castle and has recently been given a face-lift. In addition, a new wing now houses the fabulous Ryser collection of reverse painting on glass. The décor is fascinating and the art increasingly popular.
