It's intriguing that this is a wing of the Cathedral which is spectacularly decorated ..... although the rest of the Cathedral is very modest. I really enjoyed admiring the artistry of this small Chapel.

Perfect to complete the visit of the cathedral's bell towers. Only few minutes are needed to check it out but it's really beautiful.

Visited the chapel within the free walk tour of Geneva. The place is amazing, vivid colours, and the explanations we got from our guide Alex was priceless!

A well-preserved chapel in the cathedral in which a lot of the interior was destroyed when a catholic church was changed into a protestant one. The chapel has beautiful paintings and shows a lot of elements characteristic of gothic arts.

This "hidden" chapel was most beautiful I have ever seen. Thank´s to Tripadvisor that I noticed it in the list of TOP 10. You have to know that it is in the very big cathedral. There are no sign to that chapel.

We used the bus & tram system when we needed to go any distance. We toured most of the very compact town by just walking.
