 Saint-Etienne cathedral

Saint-Etienne cathedral, with its nave 42 m high, is one of the tallest Gothic buildings in Europe, and its 6500 m² of stained glass windows (from the 13th to the 20th century including some by Chagall) earned it the nickname of “The Good Lord's Lantern”
The Temple Neuf

Its architecture is inspired by the Rhenish cathedrals of Speyer and Worms, which gives it a medieval look although it was built in the early 20th century.
