I almost thought I was across the rive and up the hill because of the similarities in architecture with St. Pierre's. Yet, sitting and meditating for a while, the pleasant differences came out, including size as well as denomination, as this is a Catholic Church....More

Catholic basilica in protestant capital. Very peacefull and calm church. Beautiful decorations. It is located near the train station in the middle of an important traffic area.

The Notre-Dame Basilica is the main Catholic church in Geneva. The church is easy to find, especially if you arrived at the railway station. The entrance to the church is free for all visitors.

We came here for church on Sunday at 11:30 AM for service. It was really enjoyable and although it was in French you could easily follow the service. The church itself is Gothic inside and very beautiful. Definitely a nice place for Sunday mass.

The Notre Dame cathedral is just steps away from the train station. The architecture is similar to what you'd see in most cathedrals- but what we liked about this one during our weekday visit was that it was mostly empty except for a couple of...More

The Notre Dame is right next to the main railway station and therefore difficult to miss if arriving by train. It's large with some beautiful stained glass windows- better than the Cathedral in the old town and lighter and airier.
