The Old-Lyon cathedral

3 centuries were necessary to build this bible of stone, the true icon of this medieval neighborhood. Its long restoration is coming to an end, revealing all its grace, in the smallest details…

Speaking of details, will you be able to find where Aristotle is hiding, trapped by the beautiful Phyllis? Not far from the imposing astronomical clock, a dog is chasing a hare, but where exactly? And where is the blueprint of the church, drawn on the ground? As for the façade, why all the niches are empty and the statues hammered?

Let’s embark on a mystical, mysterious odyssey through this impressive Gothic monument, seat of the cradle of Christianity in France, once an independent district, protected behind heavy walls. You are going to feel blessed!
