4.2/5 based on 340 reviews on the web
A Roman Catholic cathedral and the seat of the Archbishop of Lyon, Cathedrale St-Jean dates back to the 12th century. The Bourbon chapel is widely considered a masterpiece of 15th-century sculpture. In the cathedral sits the 14th-century Lyon astronomical clock, a sophisticated, highly sculptural mechanical clock featuring moving celestial bodies and religious figures. The two crosses to the right and left of the altar symbolize the union of the two churches. Also look for the grand cathedral organ with 30 stops, three keyboards of 54 notes, and pedals for 27. The ornate front elevation of the cathedral stands as a prime example of French Gothic architecture.
