The Archaeological Site of St. Peter's Cathedral in Geneva

Visit the Site with Class 6


In 1407, a hole was dug in the yard of the Cathedral to accomodate the pouring of one of the bells, called "Clémence", after Pope Clément VII of Avignon (who had been Robert of Geneva before he became Pope), who financed the work.

The star shaped indentation are the shapes left from blocks of wood, which supported the mould for the bell.
