Primatiale Saint-Jean - Lyon (69)

Restoration

Cathedral built between the 12th and 18th centuries, the primatiale Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Lyon gradually regains its original shine.
The restoration of the roof and the exterior facades was completed in October 2011. In 2014 the choir and its two side chapels were finished, and in May 2015 the cross of the transept and the first bay of the nave regained their splendor. Cleanings and analyzes revealed authentic elements requiring specific restoration techniques.
