Saint Pierre

Just a few meters away from the Place du Bourg-de-four, in the center of Geneva’s Old Town is a 850 years old cathedral – St. Pierre or St. Peter Cathedral. This is the first cathedral that I saw which has no statues or icons of saints inside. According to its history , when Geneva’s residents accepted the Reformation they destroyed all the altars inside the cathedral, all the statues and most of the paintings in a rage.
