La Croix Rousse

  • Croix-Rousse’s past is linked to the history of the silk weavers of Lyon and the inhabitants of this famous hill located between the Saône and Rhône rivers.
  • From the Plateau you can reach the Place des Terreaux through the winding hills, around the famous Traboules or going down the stairs that characterise the Old Town of the Croix-Rousse.
