The Cathedral

Then walk through the town centre, up to the former Furstenberg hotel, 10 rue des Pucelles. This used to be a fortified residence that belonged to the count Guillaume de Fürstenberg. Calvin being his lawyer, he often visited him. As a lawyer with a classic training, he studied Law, Hebrew, Greek, he also self-taught himself Theology.
