This site shows the development of the cathedral from the third century BC until now. It effectively highlights how the site developed, in both Christian and pre-Christian times. The entry fee includes an informative audio tour.

Had no idea it existed till I took a tour of the St. Peter's Cathedral. The history behind this archeological site is well worth the 8 CHF.
