This stunning wall is located in a beautiful park close to St Peters cathedral and the museum dedicated to reformation history. As well as the four main sculptures, of Calvin, Luther , Bede, there are smaller ones, crests on the path, and prayers and statements carved into the stone walls.

A visit to Switzerland offers the opportunity to learn much more about the Protestant Reformation, especially here in Geneva where an impressive stone wall features sculptures honouring four individuals who played such a leading role in the movement. Would have liked a return visit to learn more about these men, but such is the limits of a guided tour, and so little time in the city.

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'.
