#281 Saint-Nazaire, France

The Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière (known as Basilique de Fourvière in French) is a minor basilica in Lyon. It was built with private funds between 1872 and 1884 in a dominating position in the city. The site it occupies was once the Roman forum of Trajan, the forum vetus (old forum), thus its name (as an inverted corruption of the French Vieux-Forum).

It's in the list of UNESCO as a part of Historic Site of Lyons.
Date of Inscription on the List of UNESCO WHS: 1998 

Thank you, Stef !
