The Church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste and Saint Etienne, often called the Cathedral of Saint, is the cathedral of Lyon, which dominates the medieval and renaissance of Old Lyon. The term comes from the primate Primate of the Gauls, historic title of Archbishop of Lyon.
Originally, the church was consecrated under the patronage of Saint-Etienne, while its baptistery was dedicated in the Saint John the Baptist, but, as is common (an example being the famous Basilica of Saint-Jean-de Lateran), the term of the baptistry was then applied in the current designation. Built from 1180 to 1480, it mixes Romanesque and Gothic. It houses an astronomical clock of the fourteenth century.
