Saint John’s Church, Lausanne, testifier of a liturgical renewal

During the detailed visit of Saint John’s Church, known for its architecture inspired by the first paleochristian basilicas, you will discover the remarkable mural in the apse as well as the decor influenced by the Renaissance. This church is an extraordinary example of a spiritual and artistic synthesis. It shows how the reformation is on the move and that it has never ceased to evolve during its five centuries of existence.
