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.

  • Terreaux square is one of the main in Lyon. The area was founded in the 17th century and originally here installed the scaffold and committed a penalty. One of the main attractions of the area are very conspicuous and beautiful town hall. Unfortunately, during the visit of the second main attraction-the scale and also very remarkable 19-century fountain work Bertoldi was completely closed for renovation. And from this area very much lost. Maybe you better luck.
