Cathédrale Saint-Jean Baptiste is located on the banks of the Saône River. It was built in 1180 and lasted for three centuries. The church is very old and has a high status. It has a history of nearly a thousand years and is both Romance and Gothic. It is said that the Archbishop of Lyon enjoys the status of chief archbishop, so his cathedral is named after the chief cathedral. The ceremony of the coronation of Pope John XXII was held here. In 1600, Henry IV and Queen Maria hosted a grand wedding ceremony here.
