    Its a lovely square to sit down, have a drink or a meal, enjoy the sun, and people watch. It feels like holiday. Merci beaucoup Yverdon, it felt so good in this pandemic to be able to enjoy some time out.

    This one has been a recurring treat over the years, and such an unlikely one too. Consider this: Yverdon is a smaller-sized Swiss "city" halfway between much more regionally important places: Lausanne and Bern. It has little to recommend it beyond its thermal baths. Why does it have a specialized sci-fi museum with changing exhibitions?

    Once you get past that weird bit of nonsense, you have to manage your expectations: it's small and very specialized. That can be a great strength or a weakness, depending on your tastes and interests. Certainly the Museum is often brave and playful in its choices. At any rate, it's a great place to visit with kids.

    If you need something more immersive and extreme (and more adult), try the the Giger Museum in Gruyeres. Now that gets an extra star. Props though to the Maison d'Ailleurs for exposing new audiences to obscure sci-fi gems, and for doing it with such enthusiasm, love and care.

    It is worth visiting this place because of its age and historical interest, but of course the Menhirs are neither very big nor very numerous, compared to larger sites, but to imagine when these date from it is still quite amazing

    Lots of history and a nice place to spend an hour or so. It gives your a history of the area and time line. Well worth the money. Very well maintained . You can do a solo tour or a hand held guided tour. This is a beautiful area and easy to get to from the trains.

    Definately worth a visit. Some beautiful work on display from the owner artist and other local artists. Well priced art work - would enhance any home. I bought two pieces!

    On the northwestern side of the 'Place Pestalozzi' one will see the attractive front of a church in Italian baroque. On the lower part are engaged Ionian columns, about three quarters detached from the wall, on the upper part with a clock in the middle are Corinthian pilasters. The outer axes of the facade are rounded. By the clock one can read Yverdon's motto: 'Superna quaerite' (seek the celestial).

    Having looked at the outside of the church one will be surprised by its rather austere interior, but after all we are here in a 'temple', thus a 'Reformed Church'. Here can be seen also a typical 'invention' of evangelical-reformed architecture, the transverse order of placing the pews. They are not facing an altar on the short side, as in a Catholic church, but the pulpit on the long side, here on the south.

    On three walls are galleries and the whole church is not rectangular, but trapezoidal, due to the plot, on which the church had to be built, between the two main streets going out of Place Pestalozzi. It is a work from the 18th century by a Geneva architect. It replaced an older church, of which only the tower is still standing.

    On the eastern side under the organ a 7 meter long painting was temporarily placed three years ago. It dates from 1950 and depicts the 'Mystery of the Redemption', a work by the Swiss painter Louis Rivier.
