Owner description: This 60-foot stone wall was built in 1909 to commemorate Geneva's vital role in the Protestant Reformation.
Reviewed 29 September 2017

The Reformation Wall is built into the old city walls of Geneva and honours many of the main individuals, events and documents of the Protestant Reformation by depicting them in statues. All this is in a very beautiful and well maintained park where you can spend some time in the afternoon. I will highly recommend a visit to this place.

Located in a park is this wall with many sculptures of people instrumental in the Protestant Reformation.
There are 4 large sculptures, including Calvin and several smaller ones.

The wall is a memorial and a celebration of the Protestant reformation in Switzerland and throughout Europe, with the four main statues celebrating the founders of Calvinism and the bas-reliefs and smaller statues to the left and right commemorating key historical facts and men of the Reformation.
The sculptures are beautiful and though the size is the most striking feature (together with the Post Tenebras Lux motto), each statue is rich in details and has its 'personality'.

It's a great piece of art. Very nice wall with sculptures of main persons of Reformation. It is located in a beautiful park. It's probably not a must-see, though.
