Lausanne's Pride
Lausanne's Cathedral is the biggest and the most beautiful Gothic building in Switzerland. Though inaugurated in 1275, the north tower is still missing! During the day, you can climb on the top of the tower for a superb view of the city; and don't miss the stained-glass. From 10 pm-2 am, the town crier shouts out the hour from the four sides of the tower as has been the tradition since the Middle Ages; the last to do so in Europe. The Cathedral often hosts classical concerts as well.

This quaint cobbled stone square is filled not only by the Town Hall but with the wonderfully colored buildings, each with its own window box of geraniums and pastel colored shutters. The square is home to the Fountain of Justice, whose basin dates from 1557 making it the city's oldest. The original Statue of Justice was made in 1585 but is now replaced by a copy. Every Wednesday and Saturday morning, a market is held on all surrounding pedestrian streets where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables. The overall atmosphere of the square is very laid back, making it a good place to relax in the outdoor cafés and restaurants.

It is virtually impossible to visit Lausanne without seeing this church, at least from the outside. Located right at the heart of Lausanne, St-François Church was established before the Reformation. After the building burnt down in the 1368 fire, the church was renovated to include an interesting combination of modern and traditional concepts. The church has automatic doors and a part of this monument has been renovated. Several concerts are held in the renovated part of the building. Historical information, concert schedules and services are available inside the church. Guided tours are conducted in this church that acquaints the visitors with the history of this place.
