Basilica Notre-Dame of Geneva

Standard

As I walked the city on my second day I bumped in the center of the city into the Basilica Notre-Dame of Geneva…

It’s the main Roman Catholic church in Geneva. If you wanna read more about  it find it under:

I will only post some photos about the inner side of the church, the whole church is much more colorful because of the glass windows, I do not have the best camera, but I think you can have some great insight into it…and btw my 3rd host lived very close to it…and also close to the shopping mall I mentioned…btw. I heard that Lausanne is much more live city then Geneva..Geneva gave me the impression of wealth, but little bit too much business, however very colorful with all the nations, races in the city…

this is how it looks from outside, the exterior and its layout…

while walking in the street i bumped into interesting architectural buildings, motives of the buildings…the one with the strange balconys  some call the “smurfs” houses..

…love is all around…

and yeah, Brazilians, they are all over the town…I will dedicate one another post about the Brazilians in Geneva…

their flag is all around and actually there is one part of the city where mostly Portugese speaking people are leaving..Portugese and Brazilians…I felt good in that area…I saw Brazilian flag opposite to my first host, in the shops, in the bars, in the cultural center, of course and on many other places…i just did not find that one Brazilian I am looking for…STILL…
