Panoramic view of Lyon. On the right you can see Lyon Cathedral.

Lyon Cathedral (French: Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Lyon) is a Roman Catholic cathedral dedicated to Saint John the Baptist, in Lyon, France. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Lyon.

The cathedral was founded by Saint Pothinus and Saint Irenaeus, the first two bishops of Lyon. The cathedral is also known as a "Primatiale" because in 1079 the Pope granted to the archbishop of Lyon the title of Primate of All the Gauls with the legal supremacy over the principal archbishops of the kingdom. It is located in the heart of the old town (Vieux Lyon)/wiki/
