This place is simply amazing. You can access by taking a tram from the old city centre or by hiking through historic buildings.

One of the most beautiful Basilicas I've seen outside of Florence! Hightly recommended. Amazing city view from the hilltop to the old city of Lyon

What is there to want? They even have an elevator. The murals and mosiacs were stunning. The ceiling detail left me awestruck. There were many altars that I didn't understand because I'm not religious but they were very compelling.
