Looks great, however there was a lot of people when I visited. Both in the park and around the wall.

The wall is located in a beautiful park. There is construction in the area, so walk through the park from the main entrance.

The elongated stone memorial depicts sculptures of famous personages and their writings in the development of the Reformation and the ultimate toehold garnered by the strict Calvinists, some of whose character remains a part of modern-day Geneva. The Wall is part of a green park...More

Came upon this area strolling the City. The park is quiet and the sculpture of a scale that certainly catches the attention. Not what I would consider a destination, but an interesting stop if touring the religious elements of Geneva.

The monument is situated in a small valley below the old part of Geneva. Its size is impressive. It is actually a long high wall which you can walk along, look at the giant statues of reformation heroes and read about their work. You can...More

What great and historical Wall - make sure you see it with someone who knows the history. Unfortunately when we were there they were erecting a rather large stage in front of it.
