Additional Information

Introduction

Though not nearly as old as most of France's famous churches, the Basilique de Fourviere can hang with the big boys when it comes to grandeur. The building was erected between 1872 and 1884 using private funds, and was meant to thank God for victory over socialists and in expiation of the sins of modern France. Sometimes called the “upside-down elephant,” the design of the massive, twisty, fortress-like building was influenced by oriental, symbolist and neo-classic influences. An observatory allows for a panoramic view of the city. Guided tours are available.
