Tour proposed by Lyon tourisme et Congrès

The City Hall of Lyon and the headquarters of major decisions, is also a palace of great beauty...

Enter one of the city’s finest historical monuments, created by the architect Simon Maupin, and rebuilt by Jules Hardouin-Mansart after a fire.
This masterpiece of classical architecture is sumptuously adorned with remarkable baroque- painted decors, stucco, gilding and garlands, which turn it into a real palace.
Beyond its façade, this building will delight you with its play of lights, shimmering colours and noble materials.
Seize this exclusive opportunity to stroll along its corridors and walk through the lounges of this prestigious reception site: the Hôtel de Ville.
The final cherry on the cake is its unique view overlooking the famous Place des Terreaux.

Fire and flames!

The Hôtel de Ville has survived through two fires. The first in 1674 caused a great deal of damage. Through lack of means, 20 years went by before the renovation work even began. Then in 1803, a second fire destroyed the building...
