Architectural Landmarks in the center of Lausanne

Since the medieval times, Lausanne has developed around three hills: La Cité with the Cathedral, Le Bourg and Saint-Laurent. Today, the city centre is still located there and even though the different hills are less distinctly recognisable initially, you'll notice the steep ascents and descents while exploring the following landmarks.
