About Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste, Lyon
The seat of the Archbishop of Lyon, this Roman Catholic church boasts at least one historically significant wedding – that of King Henry IV to Marie de Medici. Contraction, which finished in 1476, happened on site of three previous churches that stood here, a Church of the Holy Cross, a St. Stephens Church and a baptistery. While most of the church is Gothic (nave with flying buttresses, Chapel of the Bourbons) the apse and the choir ar Romanesque. Check out the 13th century stained glass windows and the 14th century astronomical clock in the north Transept. The clock, imitating Strasbourg’s, is widely revered as a technical marvel, chimes at 1200, 1400, 1500 and 1600 as figures of Switzerland, Gabriel, Marie and the Holy Spirit move about. Enjoy the views of the city from the top. Light a candle for a close one. At the pretty square outside, you’ll find restaurant, crepes and ice creams.

Beautiful cathedral. The best way they get there is to walk up the hill. It's a bit of exercise but its so worth it once you arrive.
In this lovely city this is one of the things to see. Very interesting and such a nice walk on the inside. Love the neighbourhood and the city. Think we didnt pay any entrance.
Absolutely beautiful. Been in a lot of churches and cathedrales before but this one blew my mind
Beautiful church with an awesome astronomical clock. While the architecture is not as jaw dropping t as the one of Notree Dame de Fourviere, the inside of the church is worth visiting.
took 300 years to build, from 1180 to 1480. Five hundred years later it remains the architectural centrepiece of the city. Its medieval relics were ransacked by Calvinist iconoclasts, but the stark interior they left enhances the intricate splendour of its Gothic masonry. Tour guides like to show off the cathedral's 600-year-old astronomical clock. However, the real highlight is the choral Mass with organ and choir at 10.30am each Sunday
