The visual focal point of Annecy (in our opinion) was the Old Prison - called Palais de l'Isle - built from the 12th century. Initially it was used as a castle, which seems a much more appropriate use for such a lovely building than its later use as a prison! However, it has not been used as a jail since WWII, and today is simply a museum.
