And Croix-Rousse is also "the working hill"...
Croix-Rousse is an industrious Hill, the stronghold of Lyon's former silk workers, or canuts, and the silk industry since the 18th century. The buildings that are characteristic of the "pentes" or slopes, and connected by traboules, were specially designed at that time to house weaving machines in workshop apartments with high ceilings and windows that let in the light.
A tradition that has been kept alive by Soierie Vivante and La Maison des Canuts.
You're sure to love this original and lively district with its strong personality directly inherited from the canuts
