Beautiful views both within and without , the beauty of the church's inside is only surpassed by the vistas outside.

The mosaics, sculptures and sheer magnitude of this beautiful church are breath-taking. There is a tram going up from the base of the hill, so no need to hike up unless you want to. I would definitely say this is a must-see in Lyon.

Fabulous place to visit whilst we were in the city. The views are incredible and you can sit with a coffee for hours just watching. The inside of the building is quite magnificent. If you are visiting the area you must visit and the journey up on the funicular railway is fabulous!

I almost changed my mind when I saw the staircase going up! But good thing I kept going on. Beautiful church and you can also see the view of the city from outside the Basilique
