A lovely church in the middle of the city. Soaring gothic arches, good stained glass, nice organ. Not a place that everyone will put on the list with St. John's and Fourviere across the river, but a very nice church, nonetheless.

It's a church and has the usual pieces of work in side and out. Very peaceful and good for photography outside.

This is worth the time to visit and reflect. Not the most visited church and offers serenity and beauty.

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.

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...More
