Since the Middle Ages, the story of l'Eglise Saint-Bonaventure has been intimately linked to the story of Lyon itself. Saint Bonaventure was buried in this church in 1274, half a century after the arrival of Franciscan monks in the region. The church has been destroyed by violence several times in its history, and rebuilt and renovated each time to become a sanctuary today: a place where believers might come on pilgrimage. The magnificent organ is played, free to the public. Guided tours are available. Check website for details and call for mass timings.
