Located in the Parc des Bastions, the fathers of the Christian reformation are carved in full size marble statues on a massive marble wall. It is quite impressive to see.

We really enjoyed the visit to the wall. We had a local guide that gave us much information. For anyone interested in the Reformation - this is a great visit.

Excellent stop for a reminder of the turmoil caused by religious strife. The great leaders of the Protestant Reformation is featured in white marble.

The sculpture is great, when I visited it the first time, it was winter so I could not really see the edges because it was covered by snow.

Standing watch over a wonderful park (Bastions?), the Reformation Wall is worth seeing. Honoring the iconic figures of the Reformation (Feral, Calvin, Beza, Knox & the others) seems appropriate when set against the old walls of the city.

If you're religiously inclined, this monument has statues of the main proponents of the reform church movement. Lovely park surrounds this monument.

We visited this having been to the Reformation Museum which is walking distance away. I would recommend doing the reformation trail. The museum is quite detailed with original writings etc. Would be very useful for students who are studying that period in history.
