This is the prettiest and most colorful chapel of St. Peter's. Colorful windows and arcs. Visit the archaeological museum and climb the towers as well

Make sure you see this room when you visit the Cathedral in Geneva. The cathedral itself was stripped bare during the reformation, and yes, this is the home of Calvin. This room reminds you of it's once glory.

Hidden gem in Geneve, easy to miss due to its location in the corner of the Cathedrale St Pierre. Beautiful colours.

This small nook of Geneva is a beautiful place to visit, Its located on the right hand side behind some curtains. We spent some time here to feel the serenity & peace this chapel encapsulates.

Small but worth the trip into the old quarter. Truly a stunning little chapel, I could have stayed a lot longer.

It’s beautifully ornamented, however, and unfortunately does not have any indication or explanation of its history and the significance of the symbolism on the walls and windows... Poorly administered for touristic visitations.

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