St Jean Cathedral

Welcome to the St Jean Baptiste primatial cathedral, which the locals call Saint Jean Cathedral. A cathedral that spans two centuries of architecture and two thousand years of the history of Christianity in Lyon. Cornerstone of the diocese, the Pope bestows the title Primate of the Gaules on its bishop. For believers, it is an incredibly spiritual place, and its host of architectural treasures has much to offer both lovers of sacred art and the faithful. Its astronomical clock is really only the tip of the iceberg of the historical heritage the cathedral has to offer. Enjoy your visit !
