Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste - Review

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.

Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste, Lyon Reviews

  • This is a very impressive Church and Cathedral that is still a working Church. They have been on that spot since the ~400 AD. The ruins are on the North side of the Church. There were many volunteers working there. The church was under renovation but it looked like they had a choir getting ready to sing The Church currently standing is impressive. It has a fun plaza in front and some cute alleys to explore very near by.

  • A very nice place to visit and dicover without moderation

  • Visited during fete de Lumiere. Entire Lyon Town is a treat to watch during the night on fete de Lumiere days. Usually happens around first weekend of December. Must visit if one is around here during that time.

  • Great romanic-gothic church in the heart of Vieux Lyon. This cathedral, built in the late middle age, in the XII century, was witness of several important events... two Ecumenical council, the marriage of Maria De Medicis and Henry IV and the "coronation" of a couple of Cardinals, one of them, the infamous Richelieu. Beautiful mosaic glass widows, an original astronimical clock ( still functional ) and even a little site museum in the north garden ate some of the must be seen of this historical monument.

  • A glorious place to visit, the full view of Lyon from above is breathtaking.
