The Basilique Notre Dame De Fourviere is easily one of Lyon’s most spectacular landmark and has a very important place in the hearts of all of people of Lyon.

It beats my imagination a somewhat when I hear that this stunning building is sometimes affectionately called the upside down elephant by the locals – especially considering that the whole thing is a monument of gratitude to the Virgin Mary. Allegedly, the Virgin saved the city twice: first from a cholera epidemic in 1823 and then from Prussian forces in 1870.

It’s easily Lyon’s most prominent landmark from its position on top of Fourviere Hill. Unusual for the time (latter 19th century), the architecture is Byzantine and Romanesque and highly ornate at that – at least the upper church is, all done up with intricate details in golden gilt, marble, stained glass windows and mosaics – it’s otherworldly. Also definitely check out the blindingly ostentatious Golden Virgin statue. The lower church is relatively simple.

Make sure to visit the terrace. On a clear day the view of Lyon from here is simply spectacular and you can just about make out the Alps far, far away. Want an even better view? Pay the fee and climb up to the observatory – about 287 steps in all.

Basilique Notre Dame De Fourviere, Lyon Reviews

  • It was quite a challenge to hike to the Basilica, taking hundreds of steep steps. But it all paid off by the gorgeous view of Lyon from the top. The canteen next to the Basilica also sells a really delicious ice cream with different flavors. Not half bad as a reward for myself...

  • We visited during May and walking through the basilica is a great experience, everything is beautifully crafted and well built. The detailing of the stained glass and tiling needs to be viewed in person to really appreciate it. Outside the views are amazing as well. The basilica overlooks Lyon and you can see very far on a clear day. If I'm ever in the region, I'd go out of my way to visit again; I would recommend anyone visiting the city to spend the afternoon here.

  • Basilica worth the visit for its beautiful interior and for the beautiful views. Take funicular up, but walk down if you have the time. There are beautiful gardens to admire along the way.

  • Beautiful cathedral. Completely worth the trip up the hill - but do yourself a favor and take the funicular rail line up (included with a metro day pass). Then walk down, if you have to walk. It's a big hill.

  • This is a very old Basilica from 19th century. The exterior is beautiful made on white marble. Inside is even more beautiful with amazing colorful engraves and windows. There is also access to the crypt and an underground chapel. There is an impressive view of the whole Lyon from there, since the Basikque is on the top of a hill. It is a must visit if you pass by Lyon.
