These architectural buildings date back to the 12th century, the Ch��teau now being the seat of local government. Beautiful cloisters and magnificent view from Esplanade de la Coll��giale.

The Ch��teau is one of the high points of a visit to Neuch��tel (which, by the way, means "new castle", from the Latin "novum castellum"). By following the circular path at the base of the outer walls, you get a general idea of the different parts of the building erected around a large courtyard and a smaller one, to the south. It can be accessed from Rue de la Coll��giale or the cloisters.

The construction of the Church began at the end of the 12th century and was completed in 1276. Facing the gates of the Ch��teau, the three apses are striking by the beauty of their Roman design. Only the south clock tower is ancient, the spire and the north tower being built in 1869.

I���m amazed time and again about the wonderful architectural heritage that can be found in the town centre���s narrow lanes and wide boulevards. The vestiges of the past turn even a simple stroll into a great adventure. You shouldn���t miss the short climb up to the Coll��giale, the 12th-century cathedral that is Neuch��tel���s most famous landmark.
