Big, Stark and long.

Long, high and stark monument to the Reformation a few hundred years ago. Situated in a nice tranquil park. Unfortunately no English information.

The park itself is worth the stroll, but coming upon this wall and seeing the characters that has such a deep impact on this city was just breathtaking.

The wall sculptures are not great art but it represents so much about the religious history of the city that it is a must see. A bonus is the beautiful park.

Besides being a green area, Parc des Bastions park houses famous 100 m long "Reformation wall". This monument commemorates the major events and personalities of the Protestant Reformation with 5 m tall statues of four of them dominating the central part of the wall.

Perhaps the amount of people insisting that this is a "Must visit" should open your eyes about Geneva... pit stop but keep moving. It's a nice statue portraying the protestant reformation. Not hugely symbolic for me but respect for those that it does. It is Large, I will give it that.

saw the wall as part of the gree walks offered by Geneva. Oddly interesting although somewhat stark portrayal of ealy preachers in the history of Geneva.

If you're in the area walk past. If not, don't bother. There is no English explanation of the history which didn't help.
