Montée du Gourguillon

Montée du Gourguillon, Lyon 5

This paved street leads up to Fourvière and down again to the Saint-Georges neighborhood in the Old City of Lyon. As it passes by Impasse Turquet, it becomes the setting for rare, medieval-style houses with a wooden gallery. The very picturesque descent offers points of view over Old Lyon and beyond.

As the only road that connected the Roman city to the Saône riverbanks, it tied the town of St. Just to Lyon
