The Église Saint-Paul is a Roman Catholic church located in Lyon, France. It is situated in the Vieux Lyon, in the Saint-Paul quarter, in the 5th arrondissement of Lyon. The cathedral is in the Romanesque and Gothic architectural styles. The tower-lantern was classified as monument historique in 1920, and the whole church was classified in 1996. In 2002, the church was completely renovated. It is around 45 m long and 16.5 m high under the arch.
Built around 549 by the Lyon bishop Saint Sacerdos, the church was damaged in 732, then restored in the early 9th century by archbishop Leidrade. In the 10th century, it became a necropolis with three cemeteries. Archbishop Hugh of Die requested its reconstruction, which was accomplished during the 11th and 12th centuries (the bell tower in 1440).

Beautiful church of the north part of the Vieux Lyon, built in Roman style in the XII century, with several modifications later. One of the first Catholic churches in France was built here in the early moyen age, according to records during the reign of CharleMagne.

Je rajouterai simplement que cette église fut construite à l'époque moyenâgeuse (entre le V* siècle et le XV* siècle)

Une très belle église, trop discrète car peu de gens entre à l'intérieur !

Une agréable église à visiter, où il faut aller au fond à droite pour découvrir son secret!
