Sister Cities of the World

Sister cities of Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon

Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon is a commune in the Rhône department in eastern France.

It is a suburb of the city of Lyon, being located to the west of the city. It is thus a component of the metropolitan Urban Community of Lyon.

It is an industrial town only 5 km (3.1 mi) from the center of Lyon, (the second largest city in France) 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.
