The church is very nice and well maintenance. Only a few minutes walk from metro station and you could see panoramic view of the city.

We did our own walking tour and made our way to the cathedral. Would have been better to join a tour and have someone give us history, but the beauty is enough. Great panoramic view of the city outside the cathedral.

This was my first Swiss cathedral -- I wasn't sure what to expect with all the Catholic trappings stripped out by the Protestants (centuries ago). It's lovely.

Beautiful cathedral high on a hill overlooking Lausanne. Wonderful stained glass windows and a real sense of history. Quite and peaceful site and a great place from which to get a perspective of the city. Well worth the climb up all those stairs
