This is a historic wall to commemorate the founding fathers of the Reformation. This is a story of Geneva and how Protestant religion found its roots and spread throughout Europe. The sculptures are fantastic. Made me read up about Reformation.

Best location for Photography. Sit in the Garden nearby and enjoy the view and calmness. After years of visit this place is still the same. Its walking distance or tram ride away from the Lake.

This is a nice piece of art celebrating the Calvinistic movement. Almost all is carved in French. There is a nice park around here.

Had a nice wander through the park on a sunny day. The monument is a lot larger than I expected and well made. When we visited, it was being cleaned (lovely to see a monument being looked after!)

My husband and I visited the Reformation wall while in Switzerland this past fall. It is amazing how they have brought history together with the figures of significant people from the Reformation days in Europe. Then they show how the Reformation spread from those people...More

A must if you want to know how Geneva became the city that it is and the men that made it. Calvin, of course, the main character who reformed the city and made Geneva a bankers city.

I did the walking tour to see all of the aspects of the Reformation attractions in Geneva. The Reformation wall was one of the furthest attractions from all the others (about a 7 min walk from St. Pierre Cathedral) but totally worth it. My pictures...More
