Visited the cathedral and found a museum/archaelogical site underneath the building - amazing that the site has survived. all these years.

Beautiful cathedral with neo classical facade in Geneva, just a short walk away from the Mollard ferry terminal. The construction begun as early as 1160, with latest facade added in eighteenth century. Beautiful interior with intricate art work. Would definitely want to go back

Fantastic cathedral in the heart of the old city. When visiting make sure to see the chapel of the Maccabees, as it's absolutely stunning

Located in the old city. The view from the spire is panoramic on a clear day. It is worth the climb.

One of many things to visit in Old Town. Great place to sit, rest and take in the architecture. Definitely worth visiting.

Included this cathedral. It was interesting and very majestic in terms of what we saw in Geneva. Worth visiting but not spectacular in terms of cathedrals we have visited. We live in Washington DC, lived in NYC and traveled world wide.

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?
