Palais de l'Île in Annecy

During your stay at The Originals City Hotel Annecy Airport, we invite you to discover the Palais de l'Île in Annecy. You will reach it in less than 15 minutes by car from our hotel.
 

Discovering Annecy's old prisons


Annecy's most photographed monument, the Palais de l'Île, which dates from the 12th century, stands on an island in the Thiou canal. To take your most beautiful photos of the Palais de l'Île, we advise you to go to the bridge over the Thiou river located in the heart of old Annecy. From there, the best viewpoints are open to you! The palace appears like a fortress with its solid quadrangular construction resembling the bow of a ship.
 

Listed as a historical monument since 1900


The Palais de l'Île was first used as a prison, but in the middle of the 14th century the palace was used as a mint. In the 15th century the palace became the residence of the Dukes of Savoy and in the 16th century it was converted into a court of law.
 

The Palais de l'Île today


Open to the public all year round, the Palais de l'Île now houses a small museum with exhibitions on regional architecture. You can also see some of the former prison cells.
