St Peters Cathedral - Review

Made perhaps in 1160, this famous church is rather well-known as the  as the place where John Calvin gave his holy speech during the middle of the 16th century. In fact you can still find the seat from which he delivered this speech inside the church. In 1563 the place was transformed from a catholic to a protestant place of worship by him.

But the chair isn’t all. There are several other attractions worth seeing here. The altars, statues, paintings and furniture have been removed by Calvin’s followers but the stained windows of glass still remain. These and the rest of the architecture of the church is worth noting and very beautiful.

Although it has seen a lot of destruction, much of its beauty still remains.  A view from atom the north tower of the church is a must. You can see Geneva in all its glory from this vantage point. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Geneva itinerary 1 day.

St Peters Cathedral, Geneva Reviews

Google+
  • It is a really special church and for sure worth a try. Also the view from the tower is very nice. The inside is very beautiful with stained glass and a very big and beautiful organ. Also the archeology under the cathedral is something that you really need to take a look at, there is a skeleton from a human from before the year 0.

  • A really old and well maintained cathedral. It's architecture is a mix of both Roman and Gothic style. One has a panoramic view of Geneva city from the watch room.

  • Well, it's a big church, same as the others across the region really. Inside is pretty enough but it's only really worth visiting if you're going to climb the towers to get the amazing views from the top. It costs something like 5chf per ticket. The way up is pretty narrow and there is a green light / red light system that seems to work except for Chinese tourists who seem to go up and down as they please. Still, definitely worth it for the views of the city!

  • The Cathedral is no doubt a must see in Geneva. The walk to the cathedral is very pleasant and the facade with the grand columns is really pretty. You should definitely climb to the top, both of the towers are fun to climb to and you get the best views of the city !

  • A great and well-priced afternoon! We went to the top of the cathedral and got an amazing view of the city. The archaeological exhibit is also well worth a visit; as there is so much to see and is very interesting.
