Neuchatel''s Collegiate church was built in the 12th-13th C.Until 1530, when it was taken over by the Reformed faith, it was the Catholic Collegiale Notre-Dame.On the north side of the church is a Romanesque cloister and from the terrace there are extensive views.
Castle was built in the 15th and 17th centuries. Visit the Salle des Etats (state room) and find out who married into Neuchatel’s ruling dynasty.
From Rue de l''Ecluse, on the edge of Neuchâtel''s old town, a funicular ascends to the Cret du Plan (598 m/1,962ft), from which there are extensive views of the lake and the Alps.
In 1276 this gothic collegiate church was consecrated. It’s a combination of Romanesque and Burgundian Gothic styles. A Gothic tomb from 1372 consists of life-sized figures of the counts of Neuchatel.

In the very dark Romanesque choir of Neuchatel''s Collegiate Church is the monument of the Counts of Neuchatel. It has 15 painted effigies and is the finest Gothic memorial in the whole of Switzerland.
