The origins of the Pillon path

The Chemin du Pillon is a path located in Thonon-les-Bains, a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of eastern France. The town is located in the heart of the historical region of Chablais Savoyard, on the southern shore of Lake Léman. The town is divided into two parts. The upper town (downtown) is home to many religious buildings, period buildings, lookouts, but also the Chablais museum and a funicular. The lower town is on the shores of Lake Léman. This capital of the Chablais region has had a rich history, being inhabited since the Neolithic period. It was home to six monasteries in the 17th century. Its castle was also the residence of famous counts and notably that of the first Duke of Savoy. Its historical heritage is still reflected today in its streets and its old buildings or even medieval remains, true witnesses of the past mixed with modern buildings. The city's coat of arms bears the Latin motto constantia contenta, meaning "content in its constancy". This motto is composed of a central yellow and blue element, adorned on each side by two sheaves of wheat intertwined with bunches of grapes - the latter referring to the importance of crops and vines in the economic life of the time. A War Cross appears under all these elements and reminds us of the victory of the city against the Germans. In the heart of Thonon-les-Bains, a city rich in history, you will find a quiet path close to all the most beautiful areas or attractions of the city, including Lake Geneva: the path of Pillon.
