ROMONT BELONGS TO THE MIDDLE AGES Built upon an isolated hill that it might be the more easily defended, the walled town has preserved the atmosphere ofthe i6th century. Itwas for long a fief of the Dukes of Savoy, and their castle now serves as a town hall. The well-preserved round tower inthe foreground, just outside the walls, was built for an unknown purpose. Its openings face the cardinal points and the entrance is high above the ground.
