After lunch we took the trolley bus to Chillon where there is a lovely medieval castle on the lakeside




Saw some really interesting statues too:

So, why Jan Palak? And why Charlie Chaplin? And why Freddie?

Jan Palak because he died for freedom, and freedom is close to the hearts of the Swiss people so the plaque says, Charlie Chaplin because he lived in Vevey for a time and Freddie Mercury because Queen had a recording Studio in Montreux and Montreux became Freddie's second home, much of his later work was prouced there.
