Monastery Romainmôtier

The exterior of the stone church at Romainmôtier looks as it did in the 11th century, when its existing walls were erected; its interior, including remarkably colorful wall paintings, date from the 13th century. Older still is the church's pulpit, crafted from the lid of a 7th-century tomb. more

Musée International de la Réforme (International Museum of the Reformation)

The Museum of the Reformation is a must-see for religious visitors to Geneva. The location itself is historic: The building once served as an apartment complex for Huguenot refugees, which was in turn built on the ruins of St. Peter's cloister.

Monument de la Réformation (Reformation Monument)

It is only fitting that the Reformation Monument be as grand as the leaders it honors-it measures 325 feet long and 30 feet high. The massive wall pays homage to the 16th-century Calvinist Reformation and those who followed. The central four figures represent 15-foot likenesses of Geneva's Reformation leaders: William Farel, John Calvin, Théodor de Bèze and John Knox.
