Croix-Rousse Hill

La Croix-Rousse is the second major hill of the city of Lyon, as well as the name of a neighbourhood located on this hill. After crossing the Saône from the Fourvière area, I walked up the “montée de la Grande Côte”, a street that links the Place des Terreaux with the Croix-Rousse neighbourhood. I then went down towards the Rhône on the east side of the hill.

Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourvière

The Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourvière is a large catholic church in Lyon. It was built between 1872 and 1884 on the Fourvière Hill in a dominant position overlooking the city.

Vieux Lyon / Fourvière Hill

The Fourvière Hill is the oldest inhabited part of the city of Lyon. At its foot, along the Saône river, is the Vieux Lyon (Old Town), a neighbourhood that dates from the middle ages. At the top of the hill, the Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourvière and the Tour Métallique dominate the city. Ruins of a roman theatre are also located near those landmarks. To get there, a funicular is available but it also possible to take the stairs.
