Interesting old church with lots of nice paintings and a nice Gothic exterior. I only popped inside for a minute, but it’s also got a decent interior.

In contrast to the religious authority of the cathedral across the Saone, at the time this old church was seen as a safe haven for the city's merchants. Separation of ecclesiastic and economic realms through churches. What a different a world from that after the...More

This church is situated in the Lyon Presqu'île area, and looks beautiful from the outside. You can already spot it from the Raône, and it is worth to come a little closer to admire its architecture. Entrance is free, so consider taking a look inside,...More

Church is beautiful and you get the most stunning views of Lyon. Take the tram and save your energy.

Came across St Vizier on a self-guided tour and it really is impressive to see - Lyon really does have some wonderful churches. It's the exterior that pleases the most, with its steeples that don't conform to symmetry. Lovely. Worth a look.

I loved Lyon for all the beautiful churches and cathedrals, was taken back by the architecture and history these buildings had!

On a Sunday morning, the streets of Lyon are empty and you just have to walk into a church to know where everyone is.

Nice Gothic church in the heart of the old district. Some interesting facts about the clock on the outside wall - find your guide book and take time to look it up.

This huge church squeezed between next buildings faces a lovely tiny square and is visible from the Old City embankment. It seems that tradesmen decided to build the church bigger than the city cathedral. An example of French Gothic will impress you both by its...More
