Vue du 'Donjon', cabinet de travail de Jean-Jacques Rousseau au Mont-Louis
Musée Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Jardin du Mont-Louis


Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), which lived in Morello cherry from 1756 till 1762, settled down in the Mount-Louis in 1757.

It is in the narrow space of his garden and his small house, with his partner and with his friends, that he brought to light the most elaborate principles of his political thought.

Through the exhibitions which he organizes, the museum illustrates the universality of the thought of the Citizen of Geneva and its constant current events. In the garden, you will discover the cabinet of greenery where it received his friends and the Donjon where, every day, it isolated itself to write.
