We think that the finest building in Old Lyon is the Hotel Bullioud. It was built by Philibert Delorme (or de l'Orme) in 1536 in Renaissance style. It has corner pavilions. He was from Lyon and this was the first building that he created in his great career. On the rue du Boeuf is a group of buildings together creating a hotel with its entrance containing a tall tower, the "Tour Rose". On another street is a long building with stone decoration topped by lion heads and near by a Statue of the Virgin at a street corner.
