Well I normaly visiting every main church, basilique or cathedral in place I visit but usually not making review about it. However this one was a nice surprise. Ceiling, columns and walls all are breathtaking and view from back yard to whole Lyon is also stunning. Worth to visit.

This is our first trip to Lyon, and we had a great first day with a walk up the the cathedral. Spectacular views and we took a challenging route walking up - worth the effort!

I think this basilica rivals the Notre Dame in Paris. It is that beautiful and has amazing views of the city of Lyon and the Rhone River below. Built after the French Revolution it was not stripped of its valuables and artworks making this much more beautiful inside than many of the other historic churches in France. The location atop the hillside gives it commanding views of the red tiled city below. It is also located near the amazing roman amphitheater. Highly recommended to visit.

Well worth a trip on the funicular. Be careful at the top as I tried to insert my ticket and lost it in the hole! When you reach the top the doors open automatically! Fantastic views over Lyon too.

Nice place to visit in Lyon. As it is very high, it is better to take the funicular and to come back walking. Have in drink up there it is very pleasant when the weather is nice.

Took the funculair ride to the top and then it is a 15 mins walk to the Basilique. The views are stunning and when you go in to the basilica, the architecture is simply amazing. A must visit while visiting Lyon.

This cathedral is one of the outstanding landmarks in Lyon. It is well worth the visit and you can take the funicular to get there.
