Red cross and its slopes

La Croix Rousse, an emblematic district of the first social revolutions during the Canuts era, has kept its typical architecture of buildings housing the multiple weaving workshops.

You will be able to find a part of the popular history of Lyon, also have a point of view from the plateau and its big pebbles, cross the slopes by the ascent of the big coast or zigzag through the various passages and stairs.

You could stop more particularly in the village of the creators or take advantage of old workshops still in activity for the pleasure of the art of weaving and silk.

  • The house of the canuts:
  • Village of the creators:
  • The colored staircases: rues Prunelles and Mermet
