"Basilica Notre Dame" Basilica Notre Dame de Fourvière Tip by rcsparty

Basilica Notre Dame de Fourvière, Lyon: 36 reviews and 58 photos


This church sits atop Fourviere Hill overlooking the city of Lyon. The chuch looks faily modern compared with the somberness of other, older churches in Lyon, but the inside is not to be missed. There is no charge to enter the Basilica and it contains some beautiful stained glass, as well as some 19th century Byzantine art. As the church already provides a panoramic view of the city, the climb up the tower is hardly worth the time. I would recommend takin gthe furnicular up and then enjoying a leisurely walk back down into the city. The view of the church, and of the church from the city, in the evening is stunning.
