Cultural and Historical Significance

Lyon, the department's capital, has a rich history tied to the silk trade, which thrived until the early 20th century. The city's Renaissance district and the Cathedral of St Jean are testaments to its historical significance. The 'Plan Lumiere' illuminates over 200 buildings, offering a magical river cruise experience.
