Cully is a former municipality in the Swiss canton of Vaud, it was the capital of the district of Lavaux until 2006 when it became part of the district of Lavaux-Oron. It lies on Lake Geneva.The municipalities of Cully, Epesses, Grandvaux, Riex and Villette (Lavaux) merged on 1 July 2011 into the new municipality of Bourg-en-Lavaux.HistoryThe earliest traces of human activity in Cully comes from the Neolithic, when Lake Geneva was near the modern port of Moratel. During the Roman Empire, the route from Lausanne to Great Saint Bernard ran through the area. From this time, some walls and coins have been found preserved.The first written mention of the place took place in 967 under the name Cusliacum. Later appeared the names Cusliaco (12th century),Custiacum (1154),Cullie (1226),Cully (1275)and Culyer (1383 ). The origin of the name is not clearly understood. It is possibly derived from the Roman family name Coclius.The first document involving Cully, saw it given to the King of Besançon. However, because Cully at the same time was under Villett parishe, which belonged to the bishop of Lausanne, there were constant disputes which led in 1246 to it being given back to the bishop of Lausanne. In the 14th Century the inhabitants the acquired the right to hold a weekly market and fortify the village.
