Description

“When I was small, I thought the Chateau and the Collégiale were the same thing. They were so close, they seemed to be interlinked. Was it a church or a château? Most of all, it was the wonderful playground of my childhood! The years passed but the two emblematic monuments remain inseparable. So different, yet so complementary. Like the perfect couple of an age-old union which, despite the hazards of time, renovations and extensions, is more successful than ever. She, with her two slender towers, dark interior and cloisters, and He, imposing, with his walls constructed of our well-loved golden Hauterive stone, are well worth the trip. Centuries old, the ancient Novum Castellum has been rendered eternal in Neuchâtel”.

"Le Chateau et la Collégiale, petite, je croyais qu’ils ne faisaient qu’un. Si proches, ils me semblaient s’imbriquer l’un dans l’autre. Une église, un château ? D’abord le plus beau terrain de jeu de mon enfance ! Les années ont passé, mais les deux monuments emblématiques demeurent indissociables. Si différents. Si complémentaires. Comme le couple parfait d’une union presque millénaire, qui malgré les aléas du temps, de réfections en agrandissements, paraît plus réussie que jamais. Elle, avec ses deux tours élancées, son intérieur sobre et son cloître et Lui, imposant, avec ses murs parés de blond doré, celui de notre pierre d’Hauterive bien-aimée valent le déplacement. Les siècles ne lui ont fait perdre que son latin, l’antique Novum Castellum ayant su se rendre éternel en Neuchâtel. "
