Thanks to the presence of the Basilica, the hill of Fourvière is ormai dedicated to catholic religion. From the middle of the 17th century, the population of Lyon is used to ask the Virgin's protection at the time of epidemics or wars. In the late 1800, they decided to thanks her with the construction of the basilica. I propose to tell you the story of this symbolic building and the special link between the population of Lyon and the Virgin Mary.
