The site it occupies was once the Roman forum of Trajan, the forum vetus, thus its name as an inverted corruption of the French Vieux Forum. Speculating on the reasons for the construction of such an elaborate and expensive building, one author makes the possibly questionable statement that The reaction to the communes of Paris and Lyon were triumphalist monuments, the Sacre Coeur of Montmartre and the basilica of Fourvière, dominating both cities. These buildings were erected using private funds, as gigantic ex votos, thanking God for the victory over the socialists and in expiation of the sins of modern France. Notre Dame de Fourvière was included when the whole historic center of Lyon was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998.
