Above the train station is the old town of Lausanne, where the Cathedral of Notre Dame (French: Cathédrale Notre-Dame) is a must-see for any visitor.
Consecrated in 1275 by Pope Gregory X in the presence of King Rudolf of Habsburg, the Cathedral of Notre Dame is considered Switzerland’s most beautiful Gothic church. In particular, its architecture follows what is called the primitive Burgundian Gothic style, with a glorious south rose window, considered by many as one of the finest in the world.
The restoration of the Cathedral, which began by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in the nineteenth century, continuous until today just like the construction of the cathedral itself, which remains unfinished until our days.
