A big square with lots of space. The foreign legion had a recruitment tent in place in one corner. We didn’t join. Some statues and great views if the hills with a large chateau or church on the top. Magnificent square.

Place Bellecour is a nice place to visit, it’s beautiful and the statue of King Louis 14 is a landmark. Walking to Old Water or the Park near by is really nice to enjoy Lyon city. Thanks!

It is a small square. You could go there with public transport. Walking and eating something in there will be nice. After this visit you can search the river easily
