This is an interesting public square mainly because of the amount of pale gravel. It's a large square and very, very open. There are gardens and some water features to one side but that's only a small part of the square. The openness on a...More

The biggest and proudest of all Lyon’s public spaces. It’s so big that you might use landmarks within it (like the giant Ferris wheel or the statue of Louis XIV) to help you get around. Lots of cool street performers and stuff like that, too.

After dinner on Rue Merciere, walk down along the river Saone and then head east at Place Bellecour. Then, head north on either rue Emile Zola or Rue Gasparin and end up at Place des Jacobins, a marvel of Renaissance architecture.

We stayed in a beautiful hotel right on this square and had a wonderful view of it from our room. It was especially lovely at night with the bell tower all lit up. The square itself is huge and covered in small gravel with shops...More
