The columns are at the end of a square, overlooking the sea. There are some benches to sit on. There is also an old performing square in the middle. It's worth a visit.

Nice walk by, high over the lake, worth a capture at sun set of the mountains, lake and columns. Space to sit and contemplate.

Well worth the short walk from the Chateau de Nyon to see the columns and especially to appreciate the views of the Lake.
