The park is Lyon’s favourite place. Despite the fact that it’s not as big as some other similar parks in France, it draws a massive crowd because it’s the only worthwhile ones in the city. The most famous of the park’s seven entrances is the Infants du Rhone. It offers a 16 acre lake in which baiting is permitted in the summ...

This could easily be one of the world’s best museums! The name might be a bit misleading – this place has nothing to do with Lilliput cinema. Rather, it hosts two kinds of exhibits – one of miniature art and the other of special effects in film. Don’t ask me why that combo works but it does, and it’s amazing, just fasc...

Classic big and posh museum. The building, between the rivers Rhone and Saonne, is impressive enough. It was once an abbey, though the nuns were expelled in the French Revolution – probably for receiving too many aristocrats. It was called the The Palais du commerce et des Arts for a while and gained a lots of artworks, archeological items an...

The seat of the Archbishop of Lyon, this Roman Catholic church boasts at least one historically significant wedding – that of King Henry IV to Marie de Medici.

Fourviere Hill is where the history of Lyon is! If you’ve read the Asterix comics, then you know Lugdunum – Capital of the Gauls, because that’s what they called Lyon all that time ago. On this hill then, which once upon a time used to be the centre of Lyon, are three awesome attractions. The first of these is the museum – a...

Do you have a fetish for different kinds of cloth or ridiculously gold looking and classical interior decor? Come here and salivate at one of the richest textile collections in the world – covering about 4000 years worth of cloth history. The museum functions as two different museums though both are covered with the same ticket.
The textile m...

Churches have a habit of claiming historically religious spots. This location originally held a temple of Attis; when it was torn down, a basilica was erected here in commemoration of the Christian martyrs of Lyon of 177 A.D. Outsiders didn’t like the church very much – it was razed by the Saracens, Charles Martel and even parishioner n...
