A beautiful church that's definitely more interesting on the outside, the inside being rather somber. Mainly people flock here to climb up to the Cathedral’s two towers for sweeping views of Geneva. The other highlight is the chair used by John Calvin.

The cathedral is beautiful. On the top of the tower you get a really good view of Geneva, and under its grounds is one of the most significant archaeological sites from early Christian ages where the church that was before this cathedral on this same site dates back to the 4th century!

Pretty church perched above the city center. One of the main sights in the old town. The interior is less interesting than the external facade but worth a quick stop.

Located at the highest point in old town, you cant miss it! It is a beautiful church dating back to the 16th century and worth a visit. If you pay 4 CHF you can climb small spiraling stone stairs up to the peak of the towers and see an amazing panoramic view of Geneva.

Imposing Romanesque-Gothic structure which dates back to the 12th Century, though many of the more noticeable features - such as the stained glass windows and the Romanesque capitals in the nave - are 17th and 18th Century.

La cattedrale di San Pietro fu costruita nel XII secolo. E' la chiesa protestante più importante di Ginevra. Fu scelta da Calvino, uno dei maggiori esponenti della riforma protestante, quando visse a Ginevra per oltre 23 anni. Sotto la chiesa c'è un sito archeologico che risale all'epoca dell'impero romano.
