A very beautiful building which really encapsulates the extraordinary architecture that the builders of Geneva accomplished. I think it's a must see.

We have visited a lot of cathedrals in Europe and this one is so bare and stark (Calvinism) in comparison. It made for a good contrast and history lesson. Climb the bell towers (there are two, connected in the middle). You can see the inside...More
