Devido ao seu caráter multicultural, Genebra é muitas vezes chamada de "a menor metrópole". Ela possui um animado centro histórico, com tabernas de vinho, galerias de arte e antiquários. A Catedral de Saint Pierre fica no cume do monte em que o centro histórico se encontra.
The architecture of the Cathedral of Saint Pierre has undergone more than one change during the course of its history. Its first phase of construction dates back to 1160 and lasted nearly a century. Under the Reformation, it became a Protestant place of worship from 1535.
The effort to climb the 157 steps to the top of the towers is rewarded with an amazing 360° panorama of the city and the lake. It also has the largest collection of Gothic and Romanesque capitals in Switzerland. Do not miss the archaeological site located underneath the Cathedral where you will discover treasures dating back to antiquity.
