Biodiversity and funeral symbols

France's first cemetery to be awarded the "Refuge LPO" label for biodiversity, Lyon's Loyasse cemetery is of high heritage value, being one of the oldest Napoleonic cemeteries. As such, it is listed on the "European cemetery route". It also shelters a rich and diversified flora and fauna (more than 50 species), which have influenced the surrounding tombs and other funerary monuments. Guided tours offer residents and tourists alike a peak into this silent kingdom and realm of nature.
