I went to Geneva for the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and had to see the famous wall. I was disappointed to see many people gathered in front of it who had no idea of the events and giants of men that it was commemorating. But I was also happy to see that the city of Geneva keeps it clean and well maintained.

Much bigger than I imagined from photos, put it on your reformations pilgrims trail.

This was an important wall we were told by our guide representing the reformation & fortification of the protestant religion in the old city walls. The large statues of the 4 reformers including John Calvin is shown here. Located near the Geneva University grounds . Also close to the famous St. Pierr's cathedral & the park .

Well of course you could drop the visit here, but if you are interested in learning about Geneva while you are in the city, I think it is a remarkable monument to visit. In my opinion it really portrays very well the impact of the reformation, especially related to the kind of protestantism that emerged from Geneva born Calvin and his best mate John Knox along with others. It is colossal and it is stern, no room for the pomp and circumstance of the Catholic church and the huge wall itself depicting important dates in the history of the reformation relayed in a variety of different languages. Not much more explained in English than in any other of the languages. But do you truly expect a city and a country with four official languages on their own to dedicate a bigger part in English than in other languages?

If you are in the area and interested in reformation history, this monument represents all the key players. It's a pretty spot in a park setting.

when i came to face the wall, it got
me to thinking who these people in the wall were. it was only then that i learned about the individuals and events depicted in statues and bas-reliefs.

if you happen to visit the University of Geneva, the wall is in its grounds which was founded by John Calvin, was built to commemorate his 400th birth anniversary and the 350th university foundation day. established into the old city walls of Geneva, the monument's location is designed to represent the fortifications', as well as the city’s integral importance to the Reformation.

at the centre of the monument, four tall statues of Calvinism's main proponents are immortalized: William Farel, John Calvin, Theodore Beza and John Knox. it was not just enough to read the writings on the wall. i needed to google them to better appreciate why i had my photo taken in that place.

Defiantly worth a visit could do with more English wording in the description . Not far from the Watch museum .

We spent half an hour trying to find this until we walked through the park rather than around it. Very nice sculptures and setting is nice but there is not a lot to it,it’s nice to pass by and try and work out what it means.

Looks great, however there was a lot of people when I visited. Both in the park and around the wall.

The wall is located in a beautiful park. There is construction in the area, so walk through the park from the main entrance.
