La Sarraz
Le cénotaphe des sires de La Sarraz dans la chapelle Saint-Antoine (dite du Jaquemart), érigé entre 1380 et 1400. Photographie réalisée en 1903 par Paul Vionnet peu après la première restauration du monument (Musée de l'Elysée, Lausanne, Collection iconographique vaudoise). Selon la tradition, le gisant serait François Ier, bailli de Vaud et du Chablais, entouré de François II et Aymon III. Les deux femmes en arrière-plan seraient Marguerite d’Oron et Marguerite de Vufflens. La chapelle subit de nombreuses transformations et ne retrouva son état primitif que lors des restaurations intervenues entre 1995 et 1997.
