About this spot
Traboules are pedestrian crossings through courtyards that allow you to go from one street to another. The best known are in Lyon. But there are also others in the area. Those of Lyon are also nicknamed The Remoulades.
There are several types:
- direct traboule: we see the exit at the entrance;
- traboule à angle: crossing two or more buildings at the corner of two streets;
- radiant traboule: a courtyard in the heart of an island of houses with several accesses;
- twisted traboules.
Some have stairs because they connect streets with a steep gradient, others combine these different characteristics.
Nb : You have a other exemple of traboule with the traboule of the Pink Tower.
