Cathédrale St-Jean, Lyon
From the cathedral, you can get a great view of Lyon. The cathedral is shown as the church up on top of the hill (as opposed to the one nearer the water in the foreground).
this is the astronomic 16th century clock inside the cathedrale. At 12 noon, 14h and 15h it is more than worth a visit, very special.
Built between 1180 and 1480, it offers a perfect illustration of transitions from Roman to Gothic architecture.
I think it's beautiful & amazing how these two places of worship line up to create this beautiful scene. We had to walk down the river a while, but it made for such a beautiful picture.
If you happen to be in Lyon on a very sunny, hell-ish day, check out the colorful lights coming in from the rosacea and the vitrals in the cathedral.
On Vieux-Lyon, this cathedral was built from 1180 to 1480, and displays several different architectural styles, from Roman to Gothic.
