Come and discover Romont!

Romont invites you to take a walking tour to discover the walled town and its historic monuments, buildings and squares: its past and its present.

On this wooded hillside, Peter II of Savoy built a castle and founded a town in the 13th century. By the end of the century, Romont had over 1000 inhabitants.

The little town saw pilgrims, travellers and merchants pass through. Its wide streets allowed markets and great fairs to be held.

During the Burgundian wars, in which the House of Savoy fought against Bern and Fribourg, Romont was burnt and looted. The town remained loyal to Savoy until Vaud was conquered by Bern and Fribourg. In 1536, Romont submitted to Fribourg, in order to remain Catholic. A Fribourg bailiwick was then established in Romont. Since 1848, the town has been an administrative centre, the district capital of La Glâne. Trains have been stopping there since 1862 (Lausanne-Bern line).
