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 for me.

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.

A beautiful Cathedral in a beautiful square. The Cathedral is undoing renovation but is still wonderful.

There is nothing special about this cathedral maybe because it is still under renovation. It is also dark inside. The plaza outside the cathedral is beautiful.
