With its coating of pink granite, the spherical Ste-Trinité Church arouses curiosity. Set in the centre of the city, this singular church stands out amid the surrounding buildings. Built in 1994, its original architecture is subject to a range of interpretations.

The Ste-Trinité Church is a most unusual pink granite sphere 20 metres in diameter. Inaugurated in 1994, it was the last Roman Catholic church built in the Geneva area. The church building was designed by architect Ugo Brunoni.
Modern in its architecture, it consists of a sphere, which symbolises the communion of the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and a globe resting on water, a universal symbol of fertility and life. On the upper section, 12 windows in the colours of the rainbow illuminate the interior.
