The Tour

During this tour of the old town of Geneva we pause at those places that make it clear that this little city of Geneva has had an enormous influence internationally, not only with respect to religion, but also on the development of human rights and the work of the United Nations.

This came about because in the sixteenth century during the Reformation, the city became a centre of religious renewal. During this tour, special attention will be paid to the social significance of this renewal. The tour takes an hour walk in the old town of Geneva. Also fun to do at home.
