Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
The Église Saint-Paul is a church in Lyon, France. It is a Romanesque and Gothic building located in the Vieux Lyon, in the Saint-Paul quarter, in the 5th arrondissement of Lyon. The tower-lantern was classified as monument historique in 1920, and the whole church was classified in 1996. It was completely restored in 2002. The church is about 45 m long and 16.5 m high under the arch.HistoryBuilt around 549 by the Lyon bishop Saint Sacerdos, the church was damaged in 732, then restored in the early 9th century by archbishop Leidrade. In the 10th century, it became a necropolis with three cemeteries. Archbishop Hugh of Die requested its reconstruction, which was accomplished during the 11th and 12th centuries (the bell tower in 1440).The church was damaged during the siege of the city by the Baron of Adrets, then during the revolution in 1793, after which it was transformed into a saltpetre store and became a parish church in 1801. Many changes were made to the church during the 19th century, including the removal of saltpetre soil and the paving, along with numerous additions: the lantern of the top of the octagonal tower in 1835, the Gothic portal in 1877, paintings by Paul Borel added to the choir in 1899, the eleven bells of the bell tower, and so forth.By using our Lyon vacation generator, you can arrange your visit to Église Saint-Paul and other attractions in Lyon.

ソーヌ川を渡って旧市街のサン･ポール駅をめざしていくと、その北側にすぐに見つかりました。リヨン最古の建造物と聞いてましたが、修復されていいるようで古びた印象はありませんでした。 外観では身廊と翼廊の交差部の上にある円堂が八角形になっていることが特徴で、フランスでも数少ない形状です。鐘楼が目立ちますが、こちらは19世紀のものです。 身廊と側廊の三廊式になっていて、側廊と翼廊には小祭室が設置されいます... read more »Cross the Saone river going towards downtown Saint-Paul station and soon found on the north side.
