"Le Procès" is an in situ tour told alternately by two characters with opposing views and opinions, one bourgeois, the other revolutionary. Visitors soon learn that in the Prison Tower there is a noblewoman sentenced to death and that they will have to judge her at the end of the trial.
For more or less an hour, participants will discover or rediscover the esplanade of the Collegiate Church, the hole in Burgundy, the statue of Guillaume Farel, the cloister, the Collegiate Church etc. In addition, they will be immersed in the history of Neuchâtel, the revolution, the reformation, the Sonderbund etc. After hearing the arguments and pleas of our two protagonists, our jurors of the day will have to vote by show of hands for or against the defendant. Will they convict her? Will she be pardoned? Come and find out and contribute to the final vote.
