An amazing visit in the basement of the cathedral that will lead you to its first foundations and the major stages of its history: Ancient Geneva, Roman, medieval. Since late 2006 the site was extended for another excavations that shows an allobroge tomb, the crypt of the cathedral of the year thousand that is at Carolingian time. The presentation is entirely redesigned for an easy and interesting visit, including a visual presentation of about 10 minutes on the history of Saint Peter's Cathedral over the centuries.

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.
