Cour des Moirages

Cour des Moirages, Lyon 1

The "moireing" of silk clothes consists of adding effects with a primer. The weavers came to the "cours des Moirages" to treat the silk. The entrance of this courtyard is the place Croix-Paquet. You have to go through a porch and a first courtyard. A corridor then gives access to the "cours des Moirages", whose grandiose columned porch is overlooking the "petite rue des Feuillants". It is also possible to see the old arches of the cloister of the 17th century (old Feuillants' monastery).
