"Place des terraux" Place des Terreaux Tip by Erkmen

Place des Terreaux, Lyon: 4 reviews and 6 photos

  Hotel de ville
by Erkmen

Place des terraux is almost in the center of Lyon. The big square has a very atmosphere with the surrounding buildings and the special one is the Hotel De Ville.. Dont be confused like me, Hotel de ville is the City Hall .:)

One interesting part of the square is the small fountains coming from the ground, arranged symmetrically and you can watch the water dancing. They are lit up at nights and the scene is really nice.

I had a nice beer on the cafe at the left front where you see in the picture and on a friday night the road adjacent to the cafee was very crowded and many youngs were dancing in the pubs behind the square..

Address: Place des terraux.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
