Nice church in Lyon atop the hill. Nicely decorated. A church is a church though right? You pass it so might as well go in! Not sure what else to say to describe it!

A Shrine made in mixed neostyles is pleasant to visit, but what is wellworth is the view over Lyon because is on the top of Fourvière hill.

You must visit the basilique if you're going to Lyon. Placed at the top of a hill full of vegetation looks from up there at the french city and its rivers. Build at the end of the XIX century it combines bizantine and romanic arquitecture.

Free visit and a must for Lyon. Don't miss the crypt below and the nearby Roman ruins. If you take the funicular up you can walk down or take the other funicular down from the other side of the Roman ruins.

We walked up from Vieux Lyon to see the Basilique and the Roman Ruins on Fourviere Hill. A must do while you're in Lyon! The Basilica is beautiful in the day and beautifully lit at night as well.

I like this church alot_ the ceiling inside took my breat away. There is blue and green mosaic with gold everywhere.Really beautiful. When in Lyon if there is only one plce to choose to see_ this is it. Outside is a terrace for magnificent panoramic pictures of Lyon day or night.

Lyon is a city with tons of character and no building has more so than this impressive cathedral on the hillside overlooking the city. While we were within walking distance as we stayed on the hill in Fourviere, the Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere is accessible by funicular from the city at the bottom of the hill. From the top...
