Place Louis Pradel

Place Louis Pradel, Lyon 1

Newly created, the Place Louis Pradel connects the city center, the Hôtel de Ville and the Place de Terreaux with the Rhône’s banks. Built on the Presqu’Île during the work of the metro, the square is right next to the slopes of the Croix-Rousse.

La pêche aux gouttes


December 7 to 9 from 8 p.m. to midnight.

December 10 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.


Due to bad weather, this installation is closed tonight (Sunday December 10).

Huge illuminated fishermen sit motionless on the harbour quayside, contemplating their catch. At the end of their line hangs a beautiful, sparkling drop of water. Like a lighthouse in the night, this is a miraculous catch. The attraction also lights up visitors passing through Place Louis Pradel, the gateway to the Festival of Lights. Surround yourself with this poetic, meditative installation and let your imagination run free.
