Temple de la Madeleine, Geneva

Romanesque bell tower

This Gothic church with a Romanesque bell tower was built in the 15th century, on a site that housed predecessors dating back to the fifth century. Most of what we see today is the result of a 17th century restoration after a massive fire destroyed the neighborhood, and 20th century restoration that added stained-glass windows.

Temple de la Madeleine played a major role in the Reformation.
