Place Molard, today an exciting space with many fine restaurants, was once one of the city’s ports. And as such it needed protection. Hence the need to build a defensive Tower.

What we admire today is a reconstruction of its 1591 form complete with ornamentations and Coats of Arms.

We saw it at night, when at its most attractive profile. At the apex a lantern was aglow making it particularly atmospheric.

This beautiful tower is surrounded by new orribile palaces. It’s one of the ancient towers built in 1591 to defend the harbor.

Nice spot in the main shopping district of Geneva. Available by trams and busses. Quite crowded though.

We passed by the Molard Tower as part of our group's walking tour. It was previously a military tower from the 14th century, now surrounded by restaurants and shops. It is now an interesting looking tower with a nice facade.

The tower looks very old and dirty. It seems to be closed and under renovation. Would be nice of they open to public for viewing.

This tower was once part of the defensive walls of the city and protected the port (now Place Molard). The tower has ornate clock, frieze, and the coats of arms of major Reformation contributors. A plaque states Geneva, city of refuge.

We took a walking tour which gave us more of an appreciation for this area and the tower. Absolutely an area to explore while in Geneva for a day.

It is a military tower dated back to the 14th Century. While walking from the Old town and going towards the lake, this tower will get your attention. The area is famous for its food, shopping, and architecture. Many visitors have suggested seeing this place at night which I, unfortunately, could not do that. There is a bar on each floor of the tower and is considered as a romantic place for a lovely evening or dinner.

The bar in the tower is small but offers a great atmosphere. Friendly ambiance and overall a bit special experience.
