Cathedral Grossmünster with its three towers is positively looks gigantic betwen the small buildings nearby. Not only the facade is impressive and fascinating but also its interior. Though quite bare inside but the strip of the statues and paintings denounced by Zwingli are interesting. Most of the decorations you see today are replacements, according to the woman who give informations(while we were there). She said, one of them are the pulpit (1851), the choir seats , and the organ (1960). The beautiful stained-glass windows in the choir were made in 1933 by Augusto Giacometti, nephew of Alberto Giacometti, the famous Swiss abstract artist.
