This magnificent building, above Lake Geneva, was first a holiday place for the rich and famous. In 1946, it became a meeting place for people from all walks of life. "CAUX expo" is in the east wing of the former Caux-Palace, with a panoramic view over the lake. It contains documents and items of the Belle Époque, video clips, a computer, a space for relaxation and a souvenir and book shop.
