The upside down elephant is 1870s triumphalism at its worst ... grandiose, ostentatious, intimidating ... six vast mosaic murals a jaw-dropping mishmash ... never saw anything like it and hope never to again ... now the views from the nearby look-out, that’s worth the climb

The most beautiful interior of any cathedral I’ve seen. The mosaics are amazing! A fitting tribute to the Blessed Mother.

It’s a beautiful church but be aware that it is currently undergoing a major renovation so you won’t get to see much of it. Do take the time to visit the “treasury” (free) to see some beautiful vestments and other artifacts.

Beautiful Basilique, if you can attend a service it would be worth it. Also, if you are in fair shape, recommend walking up using the steps. Once there the view is spectacular.

A lovely church honouring the Virgin Mary at the top of Fourviere hill - stunning views, calm, peaceful atmosphere.

When I visited some construction works were ongoing, but it was indeed very imposing. View to the city panorama is breathtaking!

From everywhere in Lyon by the river you can't miss the Basilica on top of the hill. To get there you take a funicular to the top. The basilica was beautiful and had many areas to explore.

Very reach inside with mosaics interior and with gourges vew from outside this basilika impress all our group. Historically it is not that old but was built for the reason. It is definitely a good addition for the city.

A must see. Sits high on a hill. We rode the funicular up to the church and then walked back down to old city. Calling it beautiful doesn’t do it justice. The mosaic tile murals on the walls are magnificent.

The exterior and interior are beautiful so spend a little time just sitting and looking. The view of the city from here is phenomenal. We took the funicullar up and walked down through the gardens just below the church.
