Amazing work to exhume the many centuries of history beneath the cathedral. Well documented, nicely displayed and very informative audio tour make for a good hour or two being transported into Geneva's past. Possibly a little claustrophobic for anyone with an issue of enclosed spaces.

It is a very large area that you can spend hours or 30 minutes exploring. It goes under the Cathedrale with an audio tour and well marked signage of what you are looking at. Amazing work.

who would imagine that one could find such an amazing archaeological site beneath the Cathedral... it is really big and very interesting for old stones lovers... Beautiful site and put in light very nicely. worth a visit (less than 2 hours).

Stumbled on this as the cathedral was not yet opened. Turned out to be the best sight in Geneva. Charts the development of the site from a small church to today's cathedral (Calvin used to preach here) as well as the founding and growth of Geneva (starting from suburb of St Gervais). With the audio guide you can follow several really interesting short videos. Lots of chance to see and touch too. Uncrowded and no queue to get in too! Shhhh!
You can and should get a combined ticket for this, the cathedral and Museum of Reformation (MIR).

So my childhood friend visited me in Geneva and we bought a Geneve pass and this was the 2nd place we visited. It is truly amazing. The skeleton that is still there after so many years. To see where Geneve started and how small it was. Walking through and see how the cathedral change for a small church to where it is now is truest amazing. And just for them to preserve that is great to see. I off the sights you have to see when you in Geneve!
