Remains from the Roman Empire to the Reform

The Saint-Pierre Cathedral archaeological site is undeniably a leading world site for archaeology and has been awarded the prestigious “European Union Cultural Heritage Prize - Europa Nostra” in the “Conservation” category.
 
Over 30 years of searches and restoration have brought a number of remains of ancient Geneva to light, which have survived despite the fact that the site has been occupied for over 2000 years.
 
Hidden beneath the Saint-Pierre Cathedral are the remains of the churches that were built before it, the oldest of which dates back to the 4th century.
 
The ground beneath Saint-Pierre also holds pre-Christian traces of the occupation of this part of the town on the hill: wells, a wheat processing area, a building used for cultural purposes and an Allobrogian tomb.
