Location: Lyon (Basilique de Fourvière)      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: France      Date: 16 April 2014
Lyon is a city in east-south-eastern France, capital of the Rhône-Alpes region. Lyon is the third largest city in France after Paris and Marseille, but considering the metropolitan area, is second only to the capital.


Great famous view from the cathedral. Did you go up by funiculaire ?
When I stood at this place I heard locals calling the lonesome building"Le Crayon". I marked another nice building on the Rhône river "Hôtel Dieu de Lyon". VG HJ.

@Hans-Jürgen: Yes, I went up with the funicular. The inhabitants of Lyon call the funicular "Ficelle". The word ficelle literally means "string" in French.
The skyscraper Part-Dieu is called, as you said, "Le Crayon". Just see it to understand why ;-). Also in Italy, in Genoa, there is a skyscraper that is nicknamed "Crayon" ("Matitone" in Italian).
The Basilica of Fourvière is the most famous viewpoint on Lyon.
Thanks for the label.
