Owner description: A 12th-century Gothic cathedral with impressive stained-glass windows.
Reviewed 22 March 2018

Even though it is undergoing significant restoration, the quiet grandeur shows through. The astronomical clock is very interesting and the rose windows are lovely. The golden glow of the stone sets the mood.

I am not Catholic or particularly religious but this cathedral is breathtaking. It is still under renovation or I would have rated it a 5. It is in the heart of Vieux Lyon as you walk down cobblestone streets. Don’t miss it. An emotional and memorable experience.

This cathedral is being beautifully renovated. Do not let the construction stop you from visiting. The work is carefully masked off and will not interfere with your visit. The front part of the church looks complete. On the contrary, you can see what the cathedral must have looked like when it was new. Gorgeous!

For a quick visit only from the outside, the cathedral of John the Baptist has one of the nicest architecture of any building I have ever seen
