"The Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière was built between 1872 and 1896, its unusual design draws from a variety of architectural influences. It features fine mosaics, superb stained glass, and a crypt of Saint-Joseph. Perched atop the Fourviere hill, the basilica looms impressively over the city and may be seen from many vantage points." - in wikipedia.

Lyon - France
Last year in September i was in Lyon for 1 week. The city is really beautiful and i bought a lot of cards.
This is the Place des Terreaux, a square at the center of the city. The showpiece of this square is a 19th century fountain with 4 horses sculped by August Bartholdi, the same sculptor of the Statue of Liberty. On the other side of the square we can see the Town Hall of Lyon.
