Petit Futé's opinion on SITE ARCHÉOLOGIQUE DE LA CATHÉDRALE SAINT-PIERRE (ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE)

Vintage plate 2020

3,000 remains that explain the genesis of Geneva. Go into the bowels of the earth and visit the archaeological site.

One of the pillars of Geneva's history! This monument tells us its entire history on 3,000 m² of discovery. Beneath Saint-Pierre Cathedral, one of the largest archaeological sites in Europe awaits you! It is an almost obligatory passage to understand the history of Geneva and its genesis. For it was here, on this oppidum, that its destiny began. All the periods have shaped the building and the organisation of the city around it in their own way.

An astonishing visit in the basement of the cathedral that takes us to its first foundations and the major stages of its history: Ancient, Roman and medieval Geneva. Since the end of 2006, the site has been enriched by an extension of the excavations showing an Allobroge tomb, the crypt of the cathedral from the year one thousand, i.e. from the Carolingian period. You will even find traces of Celtic coins. The presentation has been completely redone for an easy and interesting visit, including a visual presentation of about 10 minutes on the history of St. Peter's Cathedral through the centuries. Animated films show the evolution since before J.-C. Treasure hunt for children. Congratulated for these museographical arrangements and excavations, the site was awarded a medal in the "conservation" category of the prestigious "European Union Cultural Heritage" prize, awarded by the European Federation Europa Nostra on 12 June 2008. An architectural gem that has been very well showcased.

Site très bien présenté : compter au moins une demi-heure pour voir les différents vestiges bien présentés et lire les nombreux panneaux et notices fort bien conçus. Du niveau de la crypte archéologique de Notre-Dame de Paris.
