At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A treasure in the heart of Old Lyon.

The Cathedral of Saint-Jean (or Saint John) is located in the heart of Old Lyon and is a mixture of Gothic and Romanesque architectural styles. It is also known as Primatiale Saint-Jean. The construction of this cathedral spanned three centuries, from 1175 to 1481.

The facade has three great doors decorated with statues that were destroyed during the French Wars of Religion. The cathedral of Saint-Jean also has remarkable stained-glass windows dating from the early 12th century. The central rose window on the facade is particularly noteworthy.
A true architectural marvel!
