The Parc des Hauteurs in Fourvière has a mysterious side that adds to its charm. It can be accessed via the Passerelle des Quatre Vents, a footbridge that was once a tramway linking Cimetière de Loyasse and Saint-Paul.
The footbridge passes and overlooks gardens and convents.
A peaceful, leisurely stroll along a green and shady path takes you down to the banks of the Saône. Enjoy the superb viewpoints and the feeling of entering secret gardens.
This unique park is a place you will want to return to.
See Lyon from up high!
