Saint-Pierre Cathedral


Saint-Pierre Cathedral

Built on a place of worship dating back to the 4th century, and completed in 1288, the Saint-Pierre Cathedral, has withstood the ravages of time and numerous fires to become the emblematic image of Geneva, dominating the city from the Old Town.  

Although it remains primarily a Protestant temple, Saint-Pierre has become a special place for great dramatic, lyrical, musical and folkloric performances. Its popularity increased during the 20th century thanks to the installation of a retractable stage during the 1977-81 renovation. Thanks to the sonority of its bells and its outstanding visibility, the cathedral is an integral part of the Geneva landscape.
