“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

It's in a beautiful area (Vieux Lyon). However, it is not as wonderful as Le Fourviere. Go to the Fourviere first and then head down to St. Jean.

The beauty of this cathedral was magnificent. It was as pretty or more So than other more well known cathedrals in Europe. Iris doable by walking to it.

“Another Special French Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The cathedral here is special, with fine side chapels and excellent architecture. Access it from Old Lyon, which in itself is an even better destination.

“Don't miss the treasury room!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The church itself was undergoing construction, but there is a small treasury room off to the side that is very easy to miss. They have magnificent pieces - chalices ,miters, tapestries, incredible vestments. That room was worth the visit, and it didn't cost a thing.
