Heart of the old town of Annecy, in the foothills of the French Alps. This castle in the centre of the Thiou canal was built in 1132. It became the home of the Lord of Annecy and later the Count of Geneva's administrative headquarters, then alternately a courthouse, a mint, and finally a jail from the Middle Ages until 1865 and then again during World War II. Taken at twilight.
