Church
“The Prince-Bishop of Geneva established the St. Pierre Cathedral in the 12th century. Archaeological findings beneath the church show evidence of a previous structure dating back to the 4th century, Roman Empire mosaics, an 11th-century crypt and three earlier churches. From the 8th to the 10th century there were three cathedrals which shared this location.”

“Founded in 910, the Benedictine Cluny Abbey had an exceptional influence on Europe, both political, artistic and religious. Both a town and an abbey, Cluny, even without its great abbey, bears witness to the greatness of the monastic reform movement of the Middle Ages.”

Plaza
“A few steps from St Peter's Cathedral, the Place du Bourg-de-Four is at the very heart of Geneva’s Old Town. Even in the past, roads leading to Geneva led inevitably to the Place du Bourg-de-Four whose market has been of major importance since the 9th century. Over time, house heights were raised to accommodate Protestant refugees from all over Europe. Don’t miss out on a visit to this delightful square and stop for a coffee or a drink.”
