While strolling the city I went to the old town area. Went into the cathedral to pay my respects to this treasure. Not my first visit. Try to stop in whenever I am in town. Always a pleasure it is still in place and well...More

The stained glass and side altars of this church are very nice and worth the visit. The stained glass has detailed explanations along the adjacent columns. The central altar and background are minimalist as if the backdrop was out for restoration... What i saw was...More

As part of our walking tour, we went to the Cathedral - we were told lots of interesting facts about the Madeleine stories on the exterior by the front doors - also about the clock inside. There is lots of restoration work being done, which,...More

A beautiful cathedral that is currently under partial renovation. But still a wonderful place to visit. We were fortunate to arrive while an organist was practicing. The organ music added to the spectacular setting. It seems the clock is not working during the renovation period....More

Luckily we took the time to see inside this cathedral. A great deal of history and a very interesting clock. We were lucky enough to have the organist rehearsing. Beautiful sounds.

This cathedral is wonderful. It has some truly beautiful artwork inside and is well worth visiting. Impressive stain glass windows, a really cool astronomical clock and even a notice of marriage of the Medici family.

The highlight of my visit was getting into this cathedral. Lovely to see inside and just walk though and take it all in. It towers over lyon at night and looks so majestic when lit up.

Sure hope the officials can control graffiti better in the future. When it's all over beautiful monuments, it stops being "street art."

We happened into the cathedral on Ascension Thursday and were surprised that Mass was going on! (We could not find a mass on Sunday when we were in Burgundy!) The building is beautiful, but hearing Mass and meeting the bishop were more thrilling an experience...More

Had a quick look, but compared to the two others which we visited in Lyon, this one just couldn't compare. Still, glad to have been it.
