Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon, Metropolis of Lyon, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France

🇫🇷 Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon, is a commune in the Metropolis of Lyon in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in eastern France. It is a suburb of the city of Lyon, located to the west of the city. It is an industrial town only 5 km (3.1 mi) from the centre of Lyon, but is a community in its own right. The town grew as a haven from the industry of Lyon, as it is set high above the city, and there are some panoramas of Lyon and the surrounding area, notably from a park known as the 'Esplanade de Lichfield'. Lyon is said to be the city of three rivers - the Rhône and Saône rivers which converge there - and the Beaujolais wine. Sainte Foy's finest historic asset is remains of a Roman aqueduct and there is a fine seminary, steep narrow walled streets, parks and gardens, and squares in the town center.
