The beautiful Fourviere Basilica sits at the top of the Fourviere Hill. The name of this hill may come from the first inhabitants of the mountain: the Romans who called the hill 'Forum Vetus'.
The Fourviere Basilica is pretty modern. It was built in the 19th century by the architect Bossan. Because of its 4 octagonal towers the basilica is also known as the "upside-down elephant".
