We ubered our way up the hill since the cable car wasn't working. It was a good choice because its a steep climb and it was si hot. Once on top you get a swapping view of the city and much more. As a bonus...More

It's worth the climb which takes you to this Gigantic Dome in Lyon. Surely not to be missed if your in Lyon

The basilica is splendid. The mosaics are stunning. Wonderful view over Lyon. Walk down to old town through gardens. Steep but well worth it

Fabulous cathedral with an amazing vantage point for the view over the city. There was a mass on when we arrived , but we were allowed in.. no photos allowed and silence of, is expected.. very imposing inside , but the exterior, just as impressive

Well worth the Funicular ride up the hill. Mosaics are exquisite and not seen at this scale anywhere else we’ve been. Don’t miss! Added benefit is great unsurpassed view of Lyon.

The sightseeing place for a view onto the rooftops of Lyon. The inside of the enoous church harbors venetian mosaic and a unique build-in-one-style (though not very old) church. Visits during mass are possible and add to the atmosphere acoustically (chorus). But be SILENT

This is a very, very lavishly decorated church! From the huge mosaics to the different types of marbles and wood accents! Absolutely worth going up to visit

I can simply say, I have never seen anything like this Basilique. Every single surface of the main church is a mosaic of some religious event. Amazing. Once you have finished the main church there is a complete additional chapel below it. Plus other additional...More
