St. Peter’s Cathedral is located in Geneva’s Old Town and belongs to the Swiss Reformed Church.

Construction first began in the 12th century, and this imposing Romanesque-Gothic structure with neoclassical external features was completed over 150 years, including the replacement of the Gothic façade in 1750. Today, the original parts of the cathedral that survived Calvinist attacks and sacking during the mid-1600s are the kaleidoscopic stained glass windows and the Romanesque capitals in the nave. The interior of the cathedral is as eclectic as it is grand, with noteworthy 15th century choir stalls, the Rohan chapel, the 14th century Gothic Chapel of the Maccabees and breathtaking views over Geneva from the cathedral’s north tower.
