Nice Square
Jan 2020 • Solo
This is a nice square with a number of beautiful buildings as well as a beautifully sculpted fountain. It was also the meeting point for walking tours. Recommended to visit at night as well.

Lovely square
Sep 2019
Place des Terreaux is a lovely large square. It is surrounded by some wonderful buildings and these include the Hotel de Ville and the Musee des Beaux Arts de Lyon. In the centre there is a stunning fountain with a bronze sculpture. There are many restaurants, cafes and other stores in the vicinity. Worth visiting.

Beautiful spot
Jun 2020
You can't miss it, can't not pass is, can"t not see it, so it doesn't need a review. But I still want to say it's absolutely lovely a spot.

Nice square
Oct 2019
The square contains a large statue, some beautiful buildings and a museum. Unfortunately, most of the square was fenced off when I was visiting.

In the midle of the heart of Lyon

The Statue is far the best thing. The Palace of the Hotel de Ville is a monument to himself. You can visit as well the art museum between both of rivers

Unfortunately there was a lot of construction and fencing up in this square, but the Bartholdi Fountain is in the square and well worth seeing

Nice square
Aug 2019
In my opinion, probably the only place worth seeing in an ugly, dirty city. Ok, a stroll along the banks of the two rivers or on the main street from where you can reach the square is not bad, but I didn't like the atmosphere and the people at all. I didn't feel safe in this city.

In general this is a nice place surrounded by great buildings like the town hall. Unfortunately the place was in May/June 2019 completely under reconstruction.
