  • Beautiful Cathedral. slightly out of the Centre, can be reached on foot in a few minutes. Typical structure with three rose Windows. To visit.

  • Beautiful Cathedral to visit and stay in contemplation. What a pity it is too close to other houses.

  • The Cathedral dates back to the 16th century and although pretty and deserve a visit is not of the most spectacular temples.

  • Overall not impressed. It feels neglected and it was smelly in my opinion. There are much nicer churches to visit.
  • Good
  • Fortunately, during the French Revolution, it was converted into a temple for the goddess reason and that must have preserved from the ruin that plagues other churches converted into stables! All about St. Francis de Sales, what is chosen by Don Bosco as a patron of his order and founder together with Chantal's Saint Joan of the order of the visitation. I found that the Church has played important moments of his life, in fact many things they remember and we find it in Windows, in the pulpit and an altar with two plaques dedicated to him. Beautiful organ and classical choir with two wonderful legii eagle-shaped and Angel holding a book. Nice picture in which she removes Jesus from the cross that is school of Caravaggio. Let us not forget the rosettes that are unusually three and the other altars with scenes carved in wood!

  • The visit has to be slow and a lot of prayer. Don't be in a hurry. Sit down and make a reflection of your life and be grateful.

  • Built in 1535 to accommodate a community of Franciscans, became interim Cathedral of the Bishops of Geneva, Annecy refugees after the Reformation.
