"Famed Twin Spires"

A venerable cathedral made memorable by imposing twin towers, Grossmünster is among the best-known landmarks in Zurich. Construction on the Romanesque-style structure began in the early-12th century and continued on for approximately a century. Significant architectural features beyond the site's iconic towers include the crypt, which dates back to the 11th century, and grotesque-ornamented capitals on the medieval columns in the grand south portal. Equally historically relevant, Grossmünster was the site where religious leader Huldrych Zwingli initiated the Protestant Reformation in Switzerland during the 16th century. The cathedral has since seen a handful of modifications, such as the stained-glass windows by Augusto Giacometti, which were added in 1932.
