What people are saying:

So many steps, but worth it! The view and knowing you can eat more cheese because you climbed so many steps make this place a must-visit.

    A Must Visit

    You can't say you have visited if you have not visited this Basilica. It is beautifully built and furnished and has really great views of the city as well. A must visit when in Lyon.

    Spectacular view of the city of Lyon!

    We visited Lyon in May 2019 when we researching our upcoming book "Flavour with Benefits: France". You need to walk up to the Basilica. It is great exercise and an even better view. Plus you'll build...

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.
