Paroisse Notre Dame Saint-Vincent Saint-Paul

We stumbled upon the church of Saint Vincent and Saint Paul in Vieux Lyon this weekend. The church is nestled between the old centre of the city and a railway station.

The church nestled between the old city and modern railway station.

The church is built in a gothic style - a piece of triva I recently learnt thanks to How to Build a Cathedral on BBC Four. The arches within the church are pointed, rather than sections of a circle. This detail marks the style out as gothic.
