About this spot
It is possible to photograph the bridge at 360 °, to the district St-Georges, to the district of Croix-Rousse and of course to the hill of Fourviere.
These unique points of view are very beautiful and allow to leave part to your imagination. In addition, this spot is one of the few places in Lyon to take sunsets in Lyon (on the Saone, see the district St-Georges).
This is one of the most beautiful views of the St-Georges district. It allows to make long exposures on the church St-Georges with in the background the basikique of Fourviere. It is also possible with a big zoom to make plans on the basilica of Fourviere and the Parc des Hauteurs.
The early morning also allows us to make buildings reflections on the Saone.
