LaTour Lyon : Lyon from a different angle
Discover the World Heritage sites of Lyon from a delightful apartment in the old city.
Built between the Rhone and the Saone rivers and protected by the Fourviere and Croix Rousse hills, Lyon traces its origins back several thousand years.
It was the capital of Gaul under the Roman Empire, a free city during the Middle Ages, and a prosperous economic center during the Renaissance.
These influences are apparent in the wealth and diversity of its architectural heritage. In fact, the Old City of Lyon and the slopes of Croix Rousse hill have been listed by UNESCO as World Heritage sites.

Take time to discover Lyon from a different angle in this truly unique setting.
Discover the views:
To the West the basilica and convents of Fourviere hill lend their aura of ancient spirituality to the scene.
To the East the Rhone and Saone Rivers flow to their junction, crowding the heart of
the city within the so-called Peninsula. In the distance, the plains of the Ain extend to
the foot of the Alps and glimpses of the Mont Blanc on clear days.
To the North, the Croix-Rousse hill, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site, rises in tiers of russet, rose and ochre.
To the South, the four spires of St-Jean's primatial church soar skywards.
In the foreground, Lyon's old town forms a facetted pattern of red, grey and brown tiles. Here and there, other towers rise above the rooftops, affording their inhabitants a very special angle on the city.
