Basilique St-Martin-d'Ainay

Devoted to Pope Pascal II in 1107 this basilica, a major example of Lyon's Romanesque style, has been transformed on numerous occasions in its history. The bell-tower porch finished by a pyramid framed by some bizarre acroters has a distinctive silhouette. Inside there are some beautiful Romanesque capitals. The chapel of Sainte-Blandine is purported to have housed the martyr's remains.
