Place Bellecour (62,000 sq.m.) is not only Lyon’s biggest square, it is the largest pedestrian square in Europe. The imposing statue in the centre depicts Louis XIV astride a horse. A more recent statue pays tribute to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and the Little Prince. Both monuments are a source of inspiration for artists creating light shows for the Festival.
On this square you will also find: catering facilities, the official shop and the Tourist Office.
