A little history
Bastions Park is the largest historic park in the city center.
Its story began following the plague epidemic which struck the South of France in 1720. The Geneva government decided to create a garden-promenade at the bottom of the Treille to allow residents to go out while remaining confined to the city inside the fortifications.
The place was then named “Belle promenade”. Since 1917, it has been home to one of Geneva's top tourist sites: the International Monument to the Reformation.
