Place des Terreaux, Lyon

(3.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
From the center of Place des Terreaux you’ll see a 360-degree view of stunning 17th, 18th, and 19th century architecture. The square is flanked by the Musee dex Beaux Arts and the Hotel de Ville. During the French Revolution, this square was the site of over 80 beheadings by guillotine. However, the modern square is a peaceful, popular meeting place. Our Lyon vacation builder makes visiting Place des Terreaux and other Lyon attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • When we went the Bartholdi fountain was in the works, it's a nice place to do during a walk.
