This is an interesting cathedral. It sits high up on a hill overlooking Lyon. The interior is lovely & different from many other cathedrals throughout France. It’s worth a quick visit if up on the hill.

Was amazing to see. Disabled parking, lift, ramps. Even gap in cobbles for smooth wheelchair access.

This was the first place we have visited when we first came to lyon. Building is a fine art of stone masonry. Behind the building, there is a great view of the city an Peninsula.

On a beautiful sunny day the Basilique is a joy to behold from the bottom of vieu Lyon and the view from the Basilique over the city is equally magnificent. Inside is quiet and serene, restoration has done a nice job with the interior. Take...More
