Lyon is renowned for puppet shows. The most famous character in the shows is Guignol. The Theater is on rue Carrand just beyond r. Juiverie. Set upon the window sill in another part of the Old Town we came upon another type of figure called "une gorgouille du Gourguillon". Nearby was a fine old store fronting a modern store at the beginning of a main shopping street. We found three or more traboules on our visit to walk through.
