We visited this church while we were walking through Lyon. In some ways, it is reminiscent of Notre Dame in Paris with a similar structure. The facade is quite beautiful and complex.

We visited this cathedral in the course of a walking tour of Old Lyon. The guide was most informative and this is the best way to appreciate it.

The Cathedral of Lyon is just mesmerizing. I can just sit on the side of the water fountain in front of it an admire the architecture and beauty of the church. Not to mention that the whole block where it is located is very charming....More

Although not as ornate as the Norte dame the cathedral offers a sanctuary for thought and contemplation. The mix of modern and ancient windows allow a beautiful setting and the astronomy clock although currently not working is a beautiful site.

Wax there on a Sunday during Mass. Beautiful stained glass. Very average for European cathedral. Nice area.

Went to the basilique du nortre dame first before coming downhill to see the cathedral, in comparison of size and facade and decorations, the cathedral is lot more simpler.
