Cultural History

Lyon is one of the oldest cities in France and is reputed as the gourmet capital of France. Lyon is the ancient capital of Gaul and possesses a rich historical base of more than 2000 years. Lyon is in the heart of Europe between Paris and the Cote d’Azur, and at the foot of the Alps. Romans founded it in 43 BC. It is a city which until 2014 is devoid of any world-class museum. There were no grand cathedrals and was not even listed among the top thirty touristic destinations in France. As of today, it is claimed as the second popular touristic destination in France after Paris. The new generation of “Lyonnais” is introducing the World, the second city of France. Because of the trending bars, cute restaurants, and café’s, it is symbolized as the “World’s Capital of Gastronomy.” The landmarks here are true evidence of its long past. UNESCO recognizes it as the archetype of the heritage city.

The old town of Lyon, at the foot of the Fourviere Mountains, still retains the old French architecture from the 15th to the 17th centuries. It runs through the ancient and narrow stone street, slowly strolling through the streets of various boutique shops or stopping to sit on the road. Drink coffee at the side cafe and experience the life of the French in the 15th century. Walk in the fertile grounds of the city, pass the Lyon city hall, or step onto the stone staircase in the old town to climb the Fourviere hills and overlook the city of Lyon, visit the castle-like church of Our Lady of Fourviere. In the ancient Roman theater, Lyon is a historic and tasteful city worth a visit.

The Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvire is a Catholic sub-temple in Lyon, France. Combining Romanesque and Byzantine architecture, I chose two non-gothic designs that were unusual at the time. With exquisite mosaics, superb window panes, and St. Joseph's basement, it gives me a powerful visual shock. Whether it's murals, glass, domes and columns, everything is intricately crafted. The Notre Dame de Fourviere actually contains two churches. The church is very gorgeous, and the church is very simple. Overlooking the Lyon peninsula on the top of the Riviera, the Rhone River and the Sane River meet here. It is a very good view point. It is recommended to climb up to overlook the charm of Lyon, the night is quite beautiful, the whole mountain There are lights, golden light and river water.
