  • 1. Basilique de Notre-Dame-de-Fourvière

    Fourvière

    The rather pompous late-19th-century basilica, at the top of the ficelle (funicular railway), is—for better or worse—the symbol of Lyon. Its mock-Byzantine architecture and hilltop...Read More

  • 2. Basilique de Saint-Martin d'Ainay

    Presqu'île

    This fortified church dates back to a 10th-century Benedictine abbey and a 9th-century sanctuary before that. The millenary energy field is palpable around the hulking...Read More

    Although religious wars deprived the cathedral of St-Maurice of many of its statues, much of the original decoration is intact; the portals on the 15th-century...Read More

  • 9. St-Pierre

    Beside the Rhône is the church of St-Pierre—note the rectangular 12th-century Romanesque bell tower with its arcaded tiers. The lower church walls date from the...Read More
