  • Festival of lights (Fête des Lumières)-Festival of lights-is being held in the French city of Lyon for several centuries. During this festival city dwellers put candles on the Windows, streets lit thousands of lamps, lanterns and lamps. During the Festival, city dwellers put candles on the window (Photo: Stargazer, Shutterstock) Origins of the holiday date back to the mid-17th century, when the plague was raging in Europe. Lyon city councillors decided to refer to the Virgin Mary, requesting intercession and made a vow and glorify it. In September an epidemic in France ended and before reaching Lyon. City kept the promise made to the Virgin Mary. In honor of our Lady was established of gilded bronze statue. The inhabitants of Lyon was to thank the Virgin Mary just before her sculpture. On the day fixed for holding the municipal holiday (8 December), storm broke out, but the citizens were in such high spirits that after its completion still took to the streets and began to Kindle everywhere the lights in honor of our Lady. Thus began the tradition of illumination.

  • For some time we whipped for the head to go round in Lyon and the Festival of lights was the deciding factor. We were enchanted from the city and the result obtained by skilled minds and skilled hands, through the suggestions that can give light and colors. The result that we could see was the architectural and urban heritage and the reeling, absorbed and enraptured by the effects and the energy of light. Beautiful, highly recommended.

  • A must for Lyon! Many, many people in the streets for illuminations animated and soundtracks original and high-quality, renewed every year. Despite the format compacted this year on the peninsula and in the old Lyon, it is almost impossible to see everything in one night. We will return to the next editions with great pleasure!
