Inside the cathedrals


In southern flank of the Notre Dame Cathedral, the painted portal is a jewel of medieval sculpture (painted between 1225-1235). Old and New Testament frame the Coronation of the Virgin. The originality of the painted doorway is in the (relative) conservation of polychrome decoration and in the modest position of the Virgin, the pride of being made ​​to Christ in Glory. It is through this side entrance that thousands of pilgrims were entering the building, whereas usually it is the main door (the end of the nave) is used. But the number of people visiting the site made an essential travel arrangements inside the cathedral. It took nearly a century of work to restore the painted portal and make it to the public, with protection following the latest architectural techniques. Those responsible for the restoration have decided not to artificially reproduce the entire original polychromy, in part disappeared, but to preserve and strengthen that which remained.

The roofs of the neighborhood around St-Pierre




Rue Centrale and Le Rôtillon


The MUDAC (museum of design and contemporary applied arts), also called House Gaudard, has a rather unusual story. The building is actually composed of several houses dating from the Middle Ages that were combined over the centuries.

Panorama from the top of cathedral

Victor Hugo: "Lausanne is a block of quaint houses, spread over two or three hills which extend from one central node,
and wearing the cathedral as a tiara. I was on the esplanade of the church, at the gate, so to speak on the head of the city. I saw the
lake above the rooftops, the mountains above the lake, the clouds above the mountains, and stars above the clouds. It was like a
staircase where a thought rose from step to step and became larger at each stage." http://www.lausanne.ch/view.asp?DocId=31772

The Escaliers du Marché


The Escaliers du Marché is a covered flight of steps which leads from the cathedral esplanade to Place de la Palud and is lined with a row of old dwellings dating back to the 16th century. The steps were built in the 13th century to connect the two town markets - the Place de la Palud market and the Place du Crêt market (beneath the cathedral). Source
