  • to see when visiting the cathedral: the very stripped-down Protestant side, and the ornate chapel. see Calvin's seat in the cathedral.

  • When you enter St. Peter's Cathedral, you can't imagine that there is a chapel in the recess of the exit. It is surprising to see the nuance of style between the gigantic cathedral, although quite austere and without real color. And when one enters the "chapelle of Maccabees", walls and vaults shine and shine with a thousand fire, thanks to these shimmering colors. Note the details (heads, dragons, gargoyles...) carved on each piece of wood. Stunning stained glass windows.

  • I recently accompanied a friend when he left without a return. A beautiful place with direct access to the highest skies. It's guaranteed, he confirmed it to me.
