«Raise the roof» – College Calvin and its ancestral heritage

© © Domaine public

The two original wings of the college Calvin were built between 1558 and 1561, using different architectural techniques. The central building housed the classrooms and later a library. In the second, the schoolmaster’s apartment was situated on the first floor. In this wing the remarkable preservation of the elevated roof structure, the work of master craftsmen, will be exceptionally presented to the public on this edition of the European Heritage Days.
