Loved the history of the building and its grand steeples. As we came around the corner we entered the square and there stood the Cathedral in all its glory. They have a small souvenir area which sells books, posters and postcards

A good place to go to see Geneva from a height. Would have been nice to have some more of the information in English. We had a friend who could translate and it was interesting to know.
