Hôtel de Ville de Lyon, Lyon

(380+ reviews on the web)
Government Building
Hôtel de Ville de Lyon is Lyon’s city hall and one of the largest historic buildings in the area. The interior still operates as the city hall, but the exterior stands as a grand sentinel flanking a main square. Its 17th- and 18th-century edifice is worthy of admiration. The building has been classified as a Monument Historique since 1886, about 250 years after the builders broke ground. Notice the half relief of Henry IV n the middle of the facade; this was once a relief of Louis XIV. However, during the French revolution King Louis was removed from the facade. A blank spot stood on the spot until an the image of Henry replaced him during the restoration.
