Reputed to be one of the most beautiful in the city, the Loyasse cemetery was created in 1808 to make up for the lack of space in the other cemeteries of Lyon. However, it quickly became a place where the richest Lyonnais craftsmen and silk workers of the 19th and early 20th centuries were buried, such as Lucien Begule, the famous maker of stained glass windows, including the one in the chapel of the Virgin on the Fourvière hill. The imbalance of social classes is reflected in the layers of this cemetery, where mass graves are located between the concessions and the sculpted tombs.
