Gruyères is a small medieval town located just 5 km southeast of Bulle in the Gruyère region, between Freiburg and Lake Geneva, at an altitude of over 800 meters immersed in a truly suggestive mountain landscape. The town is the place of production of the famous Swiss Gruyere cheese (Gruyère). Gruyères is an important tourist attraction in the canton of Friborg thanks to its medieval appearance and its castle (Château de Gruyères) which houses some museums.
