Temple de la Fusterie

Temple de la Fusterie Review

Designed by Huguenot refugee Jean Vennes and completed in 1715, Geneva's first specifically Calvinist church was built to accommodate the flood of French Protestants that followed the 1685 revocation of the Edict of Nantes. The Baroque facade blended into the secular landscape around it; the well-lighted and whitewashed galleries within allowed 750 people to hear every word the minister said.
