Top 5 Religious Sights In Lyon



Description:

There are hundreds of religious sights to visit in Lyon, so choosing between the many can be tricky if you have a limited number of days in the city. In this guide I have focused on, well, to be honest, my personal favourites, but I'm sure they will not leave you disappointed.

Basilique de Fourviere has been chosen for its iconic status on the religious sights scene - and also because it is completely awe inspiring (see guide photo for interior view). Cathedrale St-Jean has been chosen owing to its position and religious significance in Lyon since the 4th century, St-Nizier; because of the churches very beautiful indigo stained glass windows, and Grand Mosquee de Lyon is among the top 5 religious sights in Lyon because Persian arcs and a huge glass pyramid (located over the entrance patio) are just a couple of the architectural achievements that make this mosque a special religious sight in Lyon.
