Discover Voltaire and its castle in Ferney, emblematic residence of the Lemanic Basin!

Classified as a historical monument and labeled “House of Illustrious”, the castle of Ferney dazzles its visitors by the austerity of its architecture and the richness of its collections, making it an emblematic bourgeois residence. Rebuilt by Voltaire between 1758 and 1766, it is now distinguished from regional monuments by its modest decoration enriched by innovative tools.
