  • After a long period of restoration, the fountain is visible again. It is one of the most beautiful monuments of Lyon. Located on the place of Terreaux, behind the Town Hall, she "throne" in the middle of the square. Many terraces of restaurants and bar, nearby, will allow you to contemplate at leisure. A must see.

  • The fountain was spouting water when we were there in February. We came upon it on our way to the art museum.  more »
  • This fantastic allegorical sculpture/fountain is newly refurbished and situated on the north edge of the square. We witnessed its “rewatering” ceremony last night (22 Mar 2018) and it’s well worth a visit.
  • Breath taking statue symbolic of France and the 4 steeds in front of her. The 4 horses resemble the 4 rivers that cut through the country, and if I remember correctly, this statue was designed by the same man who designed the Statue of Liberty that was given as a gift to the USA after slavery was ended. A must see gem of Lyon.
  • Tres bien!!
  • Beautiful fountain, in the middle of a magnificent square.
  • Beautiful place but it's still being renovated
