Nice to see!

A very nice church to visit. Cold in winter on inside. Church is in very nice condition and well taken care of on the inside.

The Saint-Nizier church in one of the oldest location concerning the christian presence during the Gallo-Roman period (150 AD). The external architecture and internal design is inevitable for a visitor with a passion for Arts.

What a surprise to walk into this church and look up. Soaring gothic arches. I would love to see with all the lights on. And there are wonderful shops and the imprint museum close by. A kind woman showed us the way, a very short walk from the subway stop.

St Nizier's soaring gothic west front is suggestive of being a cathedral which it isn't. It goes back to the late C17th and in 1831 was the scene of a massacre of the silk workers. It is full of the usual high church ornate tombs + small side chapels and is as cluttered as the old St. Jean Cathedral is... More

Small gothic church, didn't get a chance to go in. Admired the exterior and the gargoyles. Doesn't look like they maintain it going by the scruffy exterior.

The inside of the church was not as interesting as the outside. It has 2 asymmetrical towers, one built in the 15th century has a red tiled roof. The other tower, built in the 19th century has a sculpted limestone roof spire. The church is entirely built of big limestone blocks. Located between the Place des Jacobins and the Place... More

This is obviously an old church and, unfortunately , it shows its age only too clearly. Perhaps it has been neglected for whatever reason, but it still retains its gothic charm, despite the neglect. It is not a church you "must" visit, but if you are passing by, then, please go in and have a look. You will not necessarily... More

There was nothing about the interior or exterior of this church that makes we lean to recommending a visit to it while in Lyon.
