Lyon has a vast heritage of architecture comparable to Paris. Even though the city is more on the industrial side, you’ll be surprised on the structures that span through generations. St Jean Cathedral is one of those structures that have a combination of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. Located in the historic Place Bellecour, you’ll be enthralled with the rose window and the stained glasses built as early as the13th century. You should be able to visit the Place des Terreaux where all the important cultural and political offices such as the Town Hall and Lyon’s Grand Theater are located. Another structure you must see is the Palais St-Pierre. This building was originally a convent and is now the Musée des Beaux-Arts where collections from the prehistoric times are on display plus timeless masterpieces by some of the world’s most renowned artists such as Gaugain, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Matisse and Delacroix. Just outside the Place des Terreaux is the restored structure of Notre Dame de Fourvière. The church is like a museum full of paintings and frescoes. Furthermore, its tower is accessible and it provides a grand view of Lyon.
