The old city
Lyon Old Town is a Renaissance district: it was the main part of the town in the 16th century.The old town, known as Vieux Lyon, was not so long ago condemned as 'unliveable' and was the proposed site of a major road. In 1962, André Malraux, then French Minister of Culture, chose Lyon Old Town as the first protected area of France. Happily this idea was scrapped, the buildings of 'Old Lyon' cleaned and restored and their glory revealed and it is now one of the most animated parts of the city. It is also one of the largest Renaissance neighbourhoods in Europe.
