Saint Jean Cathedral, Lyon, France

At the foot of the hill below Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière is Saint Jean Cathedral. This was the main church in Lyon until Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière was built.

The wikipedia article is here and their site is here (translated by Google). My pictures begin here.

One of the most interesting items in the cathedral is an astronomical clock that dates to the 14th century.

Windows Live has a great Birds eye view.
