It's a big square with a badly maintained state at the Center. Not an essential thing to see. Tourist office in corner and you will pass through onto other place but not a destination units self

Great location for everything! All sorts of shopping in a nicely groomed area. Very well-tended, upscale stores, as well as the Visitors Centers that can answer questions and sell you the Lyon City Card.

we rented an apartment across the street, so place Belcour was convenient to sit in the sun with a glass of wine or an ice cream; one afternoon there was a huge demonstration by CGT, kept well under control by CRS

Beautiful old square with a great view of the Basilica. Nice gardens and good for people watching. Continue north through quaint winding streets to explore old Lyon.

South of the main shopping area, it's where most busses pass through and where a main information centre is (south side). Useful HSBC cashpoint here (east side, not north as shown on googlemaps). Not much else here.
