A museum based on an old church. It is interesting to see the old Roman home objects, sculptures, gravestones,floor mosaics and lots of artifacts.

The emotion I felt inside is undescribable
It's considered to be one of the oldest surviving churches in France and a listed national monument. Unfortunately it's closed for major renovation so I couldn't explore the interior! It's also an archeological museum. But what I couldn't see inside I was intrigued by this beautiful building which was built in the late fifth century! The intriguing history also adds to the mysterious beauty of this Church; that it was once used as Basilica funeral home for the burial of most bishops in the twelfth century, and then transformed into a museum in 1809. Even without being able to see inside I was impressed with the building and imagine what it's like inside. Worth visiting especially when the museum reopens. But sadly I might not be able to visit as I'm leaving Vienne soon! One day perhaps.
