    Major site of Le Corbusier, there will be a guided tour of all the sites (Church, stadium and housing unit). Really affordable prices.

    We can't ignore this site, the Japanese knows it better than the french! Visit the Church, preferably in the morning because it is illuminated by the Sun. Dwelling cannot be visited only very occasionally yet this tour is very informative.

    In the years ' 50-' 60, this will have been a trendy place and this site will be a model for modern and functional architecture. Unfortunately, the site excellent, not least due to a lack of maintenance. The residential blocks are social (accommodation) residences, the sports stadium has expired and is currently being renovated (partly), is the cultural centre and also the outside of the Church may be refreshed once. Only the pool of Le Corbusier. The whole site galvanized than in scratch by the large and unsightly apartment blocks that were built around it. Always worth a visit to see, but you should nevertheless, for that (then) futuristic, but clearly anachronistic architecture of Le Corbusier ...

    If visiting these buildings I strongly recommend to take guided tour. It provides great understanding of the circumstances when the buildings were made and also a lot of interesting details in them.

    Unfortunately, the site was closed. This wasn't mentioned on the website which made my trip back to Lyon long and sad.

    Places magical and very informative. A young team dynamic and well tuned for answering all of our questions and who knows how to participate actively. Please allow more time for the visit. It's so much more rewarding for all. Bt home visit at the charge... Gone late to wait for a late group! (The rest knows not excused from the trapped group) grrrrr! Thanks for all the visits of the site fun and informative. SC
