I have posted several photo galleries on the main site from our stay:
Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Lyon: completed in 1476, with its astronomical clock.
The roman theater and ruins; Théâtre antique de Fourvière. Built around 15 BC and still used today.
Parc de la Tête d’Or, with its botanical gardens and zoo. Lyon is known as the City of Roses, just like Portand, Oregon, close to our home. Unfortunately, they were nowhere close to blooming in March for our stay.
Fourvière, with its basilica, views, and golden statue of the Virgin Mary, built in gratitude for her delivery from a cholera epidemic.
Lyon’s traboules, passageways through buildings and underground. Originally built for the silk trade and for getting to and from the river, they were also made famous for preventing the Nazis from taking complete control of Lyon.
And miscellaneous photos from around the city of Lyon, taken as we wandered.
