We walked up the steps to the Basilique, it required a lot of energy as there a lot of steps! But it was worth it!! We travelled with our three kids aged 7,12, and 13. By walking up you experience the back streets of Lyon too.
We we arrived a the top there was a cafe which serves great cakes and good coffee and then we took in the view of Lyon - which is breathtaking. There is also a great bronze map of Lyon which provides the history of Lyons arrondissements - very interesting.
The building itself is wow factor. It towers above you with great presence. Inside is even more beautiful, looking up at the intricate detail left us blown away, Definitely worth a visit.

What is there to want? They even have an elevator. The murals and mosiacs were stunning. The ceiling detail left me awestruck. There were many altars that I didn't understand because I'm not religious but they were very compelling.

Beautiful Basilica very well preserved. A very large crypt and an inner chapel dedicated to Mary.
Outside, a balcony with a beautiful view of Lyon and an S garden that descends to St Jean.

Started our trek from Old Lyon, it was a very peaceful walk to get to the top. Once you get to the top, the Basilica is such an imposing building. Very stunning on the outside and the inside is even more grandeur. There are great viewpoints of the city, so it’s a great photography spot! Don’t forget to walk to the Roman amphitheater which is very close by.

Two churches, one above the other, with a great explanation of the road to Santiago. Incredible. You should visit it.
