The Cathedral is wonderful but this small chapel located in the back right corner of the church, near the entrance, is stunning. If locked, just ask the attendant at the front left of the Cathedral to open the door. It was well worth it.

The old town is simply stunning and this chapel is a must see for lovers of early architecture. It is part of the cathedral which is also very impressive.

Probably one of the best thing to visit in Geneva. This is on the right side of the main entrance and it has beautiful paintings on the roof that worth the visit.

Many miss this chapel when visiting the Cathedral St. Pierre. When you go in the main entrance it is immediately on your far right next the exit door.

After walking around in the main church I came to this very colorful chapel. It is so exquisitely beautiful, I just stood in awe. It’s truly a gem and worth a visit.

The Chapel of the Maccabees is a side chapel of the Cathedral of St Pierre and is a wonderful contrast to the austere Gothic and Calvinist atmosphere of the main cathedral. It is a riot of colour and light and it is hard to comprehend...More

What a difference from the rest of cathedral!This part is so warm and welcoming, nicely decorated and full of color. If you have 20 minutes for the St. Peter cathedral, stay half here as the rest is not so inspiring.

We used the bus & tram system when we needed to go any distance. We toured most of the very compact town by just walking.
