Place de la République

Place de la République, Lyon 2

Les Lumignons du Cœur

Thursday 5 and Sunday 8 from 7 pm to 11 pm
Friday 6 and Saturday 7 from 8 pm to midnight

This year, the Lumignons du Coeur light installation will be occupying the Place de la République where the silhouettes of buildings rise up like shadow puppets. 5,000 candles gently flicker on the sills of 1,200 windows, whilst the square, lit up in blue, takes visitors back to Lyon in the 1900s, with the fountain reflecting the images created by a central tree of mirrors. Floating candles echo the lights at the windows. Between the modules, which are a perfect copy of the facades of the banks of the Saône and Rhône rivers, spectators walk through a theatre of glowing shadows.
