Discover the Renaissance architecture and its "secret" passages


Let's discover this 16th century architecture with its typical architecture : numerous inner courtyards, spiral staircases and over all the "traboules" that you can't see in other places than Lyon. They are kind of alleyways through the buildings.
Let's discover the cathedral built between the 12th and the 16th century.
Let's stroll in the narrow cobblestoned streets of this preserved district which became the most touristic of the city.
You will never forget it!
