Church Saint Laurent is located at the confluence of Rue Saint Laurent, Rue W.-Haldimand, Rue A.-Pichard and Rue Chaucrau, in the heart of the pedestrian alleyways in the shopping district. It one of the only three places of worship remaining in Lausanne from before the Reformation ? the other two are the Cathedral and the Saint Francois church. The history of the church dates back to 10th century, but the present day building was constructed between 1716 and 1719 under the direction of architect Guillaume Delagrange. Major renovations were done between 1761 and 1763, the medieval bell tower was removed, and architect Rodolphe de Croussaz implemented an ornate baroque facade.

Plateau in front of the church is the meeting point, and therefore there is plenty of people sitting at the stairs of Church Saint Laurent all the time.
