Beautifully restored on the outside, with the best view of the entire city. Inside you think at first you are looking at paintings until you realise that it is mosaic art.

Great panorama over the city.
Interesting church because three styles united: Byzanthine, Roman and Gothic.

We ventured up to the Basilica via the funicular, definitely worth the trip, it was quite a walk at the top, but a pleasant way to discover a new city. The view is amazing! Even on a wet dreary day it was good. The Basilica is a lovely mixture of architectural styles and inside it is just beautiful. The painted ceilings were divine. On a brighter/sunny day it would have been all the more stunning.

We trudged up the steep road to the Basilica and realised at the top that we could have taken the funicular. But had we done that we wouldn't have stopped at the look out over the city half-way up or seen the lovely buildings along the way. However you get there, well worth a visit as the Basilica's multi-domed ceiling is spectacular, resplendent in gold mosaic scenes. Just beautiful.

You can see the basilique at the top of the hill when you are approaching to "Le vieux Lyon". You can choose to get there by a zip train or going hill up, that it is a nice walk (up and up) and not takes longer.
Once there have your time to enjoy with the most amazing views of the city. Even the best photo is from Vieux Lyon, it is worthy also to get into the basilique, because inside is also very nive
