When I visited some construction works were ongoing, but it was indeed very imposing. View to the city panorama is breathtaking!

From everywhere in Lyon by the river you can't miss the Basilica on top of the hill. To get there you take a funicular to the top. The basilica was beautiful and had many areas to explore.

Very reach inside with mosaics interior and with gourges vew from outside this basilika impress all our group. Historically it is not that old but was built for the reason. It is definitely a good addition for the city.

A must see. Sits high on a hill. We rode the funicular up to the church and then walked back down to old city. Calling it beautiful doesn’t do it justice. The mosaic tile murals on the walls are magnificent.

The exterior and interior are beautiful so spend a little time just sitting and looking. The view of the city from here is phenomenal. We took the funicullar up and walked down through the gardens just below the church.
