Having left Murten I'm cycling 15 miles to Estavayer-le-Lac, another walled-in medieval town overlooking a lake. Passing through the village of St. Aubin I come upon this roundabout. The brown sign on the bottom reads "Chateau de St-Aubin". (Don't forget you can click on the image and it'll enlarge). Small towns and villages are always trying to get tourists and people passing through to linger. Me, I love visiting castles and in French the word "chateau" means manor or country house but, it can also mean castle.
Finding the castle involves cycling up a steep hill and midway I stop to fill my water bottle. These fountains usually have the date they were installed and this fountain is stamped "1754". I'm in the canton of Fribourg. In the USA we have states and in Switzerland they have cantons. Fribourg is the most catholic of all the cantons with 65% of the population being catholic. So, it's no surprise to find a religious figure overlooking the fountain.
