Archeological site of Saint-Pierre Cathedral in Geneva
The Archaeological Site of Saint Pierre Cathedral in Geneva is a major research and excavation works underneath the cathedral and the surrounding streets were carried out over an extended period of 30 years (1976-2006). The works uncovered remains of over 2000 years of urban development in the historic centre of Geneva.
In 2006 the site was opened to the public. It has been sensitively adapted to accommodate visitors and an exemplary presentation has been developed, using a variety of mediums to showcase an important urban archaeology site of European and world importance.
“The project is highly valued for the quality of the excavation works on a most difficult site, and for the integrated approach and excellent collaboration between archaeologists, conservators and architects.”
