Although it does not come close in comparison with major cathedrals around the world, Cathedrale de St-Pierre is a beauty of its own. Stands high above the city, easily noticeable from every side of the city, beautiful structure. Well worth the visit, and a must...More

Standing tall in the middle of old town. Simply irresistible. Closes early (I think around 7pm), plan the visit accordingly.

You can go to the top and see the beautiful Geneva. Totally worth it. Go to the top and take a look of whole Geneva. You can buy posts at the first floor

The Cathedral brings your thought on the early years of Geneva in its French years. The Cathedral is kept very clean and the silent environment wakes up your ritual feeling within you. It is good for those love historical monuments and have faith in any...More

No trip to Geneva would be complete without a visit to the Cathedral de St. Pierre. Dating to the mid-12th century, the cathedral boasts a simple chair used by John Calvin. The area under the cathedral has been extensively excavated and offers a great look...More

I completely understand that this is a Protestant cathedral and therefore 'distractions' were very much taken out of it. However for me, it was just a bit lackluster... It is free though and in the cathedral you are able to reach the chapel of the...More

The Cathedral is high up on a hill in Geneva so we took a taxi bike ride almost to the top - our 'pilot' must be very fit! The Cathedral is very impressive with lots of medieval and later detail. The side chapel is beautiful...More

At first glance, this cathedral looks very plain and stark in the interior except for some lovely stained glass windows, wooden choir stalls and ornate capitals on the columns. The Cathedral was started in 1160 in Romanesque style and completed in the 1200's in Gothic...More

Hi, kanjer2015. What would you like to know about this attraction? When I looked at the Cathedral website it was all in French (sorry do not speak French)and I could not find or try to decipher the opening times anywhere. Can anyone please help as we would really like to visit it. From from I could see the Secretariat was only open during the week - is the cathedral not open at weekends? Surely it must be open on sundays?
