A must see in the old town of Geneva. This atmospheric cathedral has beautiful windows and is of historical importance in the development of Calvinism after the reformation.

It is worth to have a look inside the church while exploring the old city of Geneva. Since it is a calvinistic church one can't find as many "decorative" interior as in catholic ones.

If you ever wondered where would be a nice picture of Geneva taken? Then the Cathedral would be the perfect place. By accessing the stairs all the way up to the roof. The view is breathtaking. One of my favorite churches for meditation and praying.

The cathedral is very pretty but the real treasure here is the chapel, the details and work in it are amazing. The climb of the towers is a must if you want to enjoy an amazing and beautiful view of Geneva.

Hi Sophie, The cathedral is not that big so you don’t need any guides or maps. For going up you need to pay inside and yes There is always someone to help.
