Gardens of the Fine Arts Museum

Gardens of the Fine Arts Museum, Lyon 1

In the midst of the busy modern city lies a haven of peace and harmony: the gardens of the Fine Arts Museum.
The time old walls of the former abbey protect passers-by from the hustle and bustle of the city while the gardens echo with the voices of children playing and visitors strolling under the leafy canopy of linden and birch trees and the mighty oak.

The centrepiece of the garden is fountain composed of an antique sarcophagus crowned by a small statue of Apollo, God of the arts.
