Aperçu

Croix-Rousse, or « Red Cross » in English, is an ancient suburb which joined the city of Lyon during the 19th century. It became the « working hill » because of its numerous silk workers called « Canuts » during the 19th century, when Lyon was the centre of silk manufacture in Europe (oh no, in the World 🙂 ).
They marked the history of Lyon through numerous labor revolts.
The architecture of the buildings is representative of the silk activity, as well as the presence of numerous « traboules » which we will discover by going down the hill.

Today, Croix-Rousse is a popular district, with an exceptionnal market everyday, and in which settled down numerous artists and from where you can enjoy fantastics views over Lyon.

Possibility to add to this tour a visit of a silk workshop presenting old looms in a real silk worker apartment (if you are at least 5 persons)
