    Description :

    “I saw quite clearly since that day the opposition between those two mountains, the mystic mountain and the working one: but I didn’t sense their war” – Jules Michelet in Le Banquet, 1878

    The mystic mountain (or hill that prays) is Fourvière, which houses the headquarters of the diocese, several convents, and hosts at its top the Notre-Dame de Fourvière. The mountain of work (the hill that works) is the Red Cross because it was the place where the canuts were living and working, and built to the town its silky reputation.
