Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Geneva / Geneva / Reformation Wall (Mur de la Reformation)
Reformation Wall (Mur de la Reformation) depicts the story of the Protestant Reformation with statues of significant individuals, events, and documents. Built in 1909, the 18 m (60 ft) wall resulted from a contest designed to spruce up the grounds of the University of Geneva. Because the city was the center of Calvinism during the Reformation, the wall honors four important Calvinists most prominently. Statues of Theodore Beza, John Calvin, William Farel, and John Knox stand 5 m (16 ft) tall in the center of the wall. Surrounding these figures are Calvinists from other countries, such as Oliver Cromwell from England, and William the Silent from the Netherlands. Below the statues, read descriptions of how each of these figures supported Calvinism and the Reformation.

This is a nice piece of art celebrating the Calvinistic movement. Almost all is carved in French. There is a nice park around here. more »
superbe lumière dans l'après-midi de ce mur de la réformation situé au cœur du magnifique parc des Bastions more »superb light in the afternoon of this wall of the Reformation located in the heart of the beautiful bastions Park
This wall was interesting to visit as it has the statues of William Farel, John Calvin, Theodore Beza and John Knox who represent the protestant reformation in Geneva. However, I thought the place where it was was even cooler to visit. The park was just so beautiful and relaxing. I loved it.
Great park for a walk and a history lesson. Do your homework work about the men who had a word in the world. People playing chess, children in playground, and a lovely passage under the trees for the romantic ones! Impressive the sculpture figures.
