Observatoire de la basilique

Recommended
From the observatory of the basilica (287 steps), you get a 360° view of the Lyonnais mountains, Mont Pilat and Mont d'Or. On a fine day you can see as far as the Alps (to the east) and the Puy de Dôme (to the west). The viewing table will help you work out what's what.
