Yverdon (official name: Yverdon-les-Bains) is an economic, administrative and cultural centre in the northern part of the canton of Vaud. Yverdon Castle, a castle of the Dukes of Savoy (13th century), was an educational institution run by Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi from 1805 to 1825; it is now a museum. Yverdon's sulphurous thermal springs have been known since Roman times.
