WITNESS THE KEY MOMENTS OF THE ESCALADE
December 1602 – the Duke of Savoy is about to send his troops into Geneva. Right as the ferocious Brunaulieu is the first to reach the top of the city walls, the shot of an arquebus echoes in the night, sounding the alarm. Thus begins a series of acts of bravery which will shift the tide of the battle – a humble cooking pot, thrown from an open window. A fiercely kept door, or a portcullis crashing into the ground with a thunderous roar… Those are but a few of the events you will witness during your turbulent journey through the Geneva of 1602!
