Guided tours Fourvière Unusual
Tour proposed by Lyon tourisme et Congrès

A different side of Lyon...

Explore the extraordinary paths of Lyon’s oldest cemetery, Cimetière de Loyasse, which was built in 1807.
Located on Fourvière Hill, in the Quatre Vents neighbourhood, it offers amazingly diverse monuments, fascinating stories and a plethora of intriguing symbols that conjure up the beyond, as seen from the realm of mortals.

There is plenty to learn on this guided tour of Loyasse cemetery. It bears witness to a privileged period, a golden age in Lyon, where great families, intellectuals, artists, creators, engineers, entrepreneurs and one very famous healer, managed to leave their mark and, in a manner of speaking, remain alive today.

Post mortem

The gravestone of Maître Philippe in Loyasse cemetery, on the hills of the Saint-Just district, is constantly covered in flowers…
Now isn't that strange?
