  • Military prison French quasi-non used in the end of the 1930s, she resumed service early in the war, she becomes a Vichy prison (Pétain Government), in the hands of the militia until 1942, year or the Gestapo of the nazis decided to make a place of repression, torture and death! Jean-Moulin, but also Raymond Aubrac, arrested with him, but who was luckier, there were locked up, tortured Jean-Moulin. But it is also a place of passage for the "children of Izieu", which there were imprisoned before being killed by the nazis at Auschwitz. It is here also that the executioner nazi Klaus Barbie was imprisoned during his trial in Lyon, in 1987, convicted then in perpetuity. Place of memory, Memorial of the French Republic. If you go through the Part-Dieu in Lyon Station, way, take some time to visit this place, which you get out unscathed.

The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites.
