Fourvière: a symbolic site for Lyon and its region

It’s an important historical site with the foundation of Lugdunum, a great cultural place, an important tourist site with more than 2,5 million visitors every year, being thus the most visited site in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region. The city and Metropolis of Lyon have applied for a labelisation « Grand Site de France » for all the entire hill of Fourvière.

The Fourvière Foundation, owner of the basilica and the buildings around, has launched a major project with cultural, social and economic dimensions. 

The Fourvière project will enable the tourist development of the whole hill of Fourvière, which makes an economic challenge for the city of Lyon and its area.
