Lyon: La Basilique de Fourvière

Coucou, it’s been a little while since I dropped by. I have so many photos to share from the past few weeks’ travels and such, but for today just one, from Lyon no less.

In Lyon there’s a cathedral on the hill called “La Basilique de Fourvière”. It’s super-majestic and old, and if you do actually manage to walk up all the steps to the top (or catch the funiculière), there’s the most magical view of Presqu’ile, and the whole city. Heather and I caught the funiculière up at sunset to look at all the red roofs, and it was a little bit breathtaking. Regarde:

I’m wearing the Gretel coat from Collectif: almost as magical as the view. It was a London acquisition which has made the icy days in Lyon sort of more bearable. You’ll be seeing a lot of this coat, j’espère.

It’s bedtime in Ireland (I’m in Ireland!), so à bientôt, and gros bisous !

  1. Ahhh that coat is so amazing! x

  2. Greetings from Australia,
    La Basilique de Fourvière is one of the most beautiful cathedrals that I have experienced, I have many fond memories of walking along the outside, admiring the architecture before proceeding to the interior and marvelling at the beautiful mosaics, colonnades and magnificent ceiling. Thanks for this post, it brought back beautiful memories.
    God bless
