Beautiful!

Beautiful architecture well worth going to see. We had surprisingly warm and sunny weather for the time of year which only helped make everything seem beautiful!

Where I am staying is literally at the back door of this magnificent building, so to get anywhere I pass it. And everytime I have to look and review - it is splendid and the square is a hive of activity (with awesome fountain). You won't be able to miss stumbling across this façade when in Lyon.

This is a magnificent building and right in the centre of town. Sit on the other side of the square and look across and admire the building.

One of the best building in lyon. Back side near opera national de lyon, front side face place des terreaux. Fontaine bertholdi gives another attraction to hotel de ville.

I never tire of this wonderful city. I have shared other posts showing the many attractions that await the first time and returning visitor. The photographs show street scenes that are now as familiar to me as my own home town. Take time out to visit Lyon, you will not be dissapointed

The 'Hotel del Ville' or City Hall. One of the largest and most ornate buildings in Lyon. Would have loved to see the inside, but the outside is very impressive and even more beautiful when lit up at night.

The structure and the decoration of the front of this building is outstanding, and there are some interesting features of the rear and centre of the building which can partially be seen through the railings at the rear of the building.
