Owner description: This public square, lit up at night by a beautiful 19th-century fountain, is always crowded in the evenings.

We prefer small towns, but the beauty of Lyon, particularly its square and bridges, is highlighted in places like the Place des Terraux. Don't miss it.

Really attractive open space with a wonderful fountain. Nice atmosphere at night. Good place to sit with a drink and watch the world go by.

This enormous and impressive square is a real focal point of the Presqu’ile area of Lyon and as our hotel was situated only a couple of minutes walk away it became a very familiar location during our five day visit to the city.
Both the Museum of Fine Arts & the Town Hall are situated here but the main feature of the square is a large fountain installed in 1894 and featuring a chariot with four horses.
All around one side are a line of cafes with outdoor seating and giving a great atmosphere sitting in the sun watching the world go by.

Hotel de Ville, and Palais des Arts are the two main buildings in this square and it provides a respite from all the shops with two or three cafes having outside seating to enjoy the sun. The fountain is spectacular and it is not far from the old town if that is where you are heading after a bit of shopping.
