Historical Cities

The Manécanterie, or the parish choir school, is located to the right of the Primatiale; the entrance is inside the cathedral. The choir school is the oldest building of Lyon’s historical centre. Constructed in the eleventh century, it mixes Romanesque and Gothic styles. Originally it served as a refectory for the canons of Saint-Jean then became home for the cathedral singers hence its name (mane cantare = to sing in the morning).
