    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).

    Saint-Jean Primatiale

    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.

    Hope no one noticed my devilish presence!
