Place des Terreaux, Lyon

3.6
#11 of 37 in Sightseeing in Lyon
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Between the work and the storm that hit us, this place should be reconsidered in good conditions. A good time spent away from umbrellas of the Boston.

  • It's the terreaux square we visit an emblematic place in Lyon. We'll also see the fountain made by bartholdi. Bartholdi is the creator of the statue of liberty in New york.

Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. 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. Near the breathtaking Parc de la Tête, the Tête D’Or district offers a quieter option away from the city center.
