LOCATION 3 | A Stroll Through Carouge: Geneva's Little Italy
Place de Sardaigne
Stop for a moment at the corner in front of the restaurant.
The large open area ahead of you is Place de Sardaigne. It was renovated in 1983 to include a big parking underneath because we want to keep the cars out of the ancient city as much as possible. This place is where we hold all our fairs and festivals. Carouge is known for always having kermises and events of all kinds.
And on the other side is the first modern extension of Carouge: five equal 14-floor apartment and office buildings which were then called towers. They date from the 1950s and are an example of modern architecture inspired by the famous Swiss architect Le Corbusier. Many architecture universities from around the world bring their students to study them.
Now, turn left here into the street “Jaques-Dalphin”, pass behind the church, cross the next street and continue walking.
