The Basilique de Fourvière is an imposing structure overlooking the centre of Lyon. The Basilique is impressive, grand, and is worth visiting.
Only the crypt was open when we visited a couple of weekends ago. Scaffolding and building materials piled around the main entrance suggested winter renovations were in-progress.
The ceilings of the crypt are beautifully decorated.
As with the Primatiale further down the hill, the shadows within the Basilique are fun to photograph.
We visited the Basilique on the first weekend of bright sunshine. The walk up was easy enough even with the slopes. Most of our walks around Lyon are on the flat, and so a wander up a hill was welcome exercise.
