From 1953 to Chaplin’s death in 1977, the population of Vevey got accustomed to coming across a Hollywood star in the cobbled streets or on the famous market square. It was none other than the great Charlie Chaplin, who had chosen to settle with his family in Corsier-sur-Vevey in the Manoir de Ban offering peace and quiet and exceptional views of Lake Geneva and the Alps. The international star lived there for 25 years with his wife Oona and their children, of whom four were born in Switzerland. According to his last will, the artist rests in the cemetery of Corsier next to his wife. More than 40 years after the disappearance of this cinema giant, the Vaudois Riviera continues to pay tribute to Charlie Chaplin in various emblematic places: the museum Chaplin's World by Grévin in Corsier, the bronze statue of the Tramp on the lakeside promenades of Vevey as well as the huge 40-metre high murals visible on the two "Chaplin Towers" in the district of Gilamont in Vevey. While taking a stroll in this charming city of 20,000 inhabitants, you may encounter references to the Tramp, either in the name of a coffee shop or a window dressing. There’s also the Chaplin Run held each year since 1982 in the park of the Manoir de Ban and the surroundings of Corsier. All this evidences the region’s attachment to this humane character with an international reputation.
