About this spot
This spot is located Trinité square at the 5th arrondissement of Lyon in the Old Lyon.
In the heart of the UNESCO protected area, the Trinité square, entirely paved and surrounded by old buildings like the house of the sun (eighteenth century) is more a crossing of small streets than a real place. Completely against the flank of the Fourviere hill, it is the lower end of the Gourguillon climb which extends in a straight line through the mouth of Tramassac street forming the northern end of the square where the meeting joins Saint-Georges, Bellievre and Ferrachat streets that merge a few meters further south.
This square with its very superb medieval and Renaissance district and its traboules allowing access from one building to another was beautifully renovated.
These old neighborhoods are perfect for making black and white photo developments or making old prints.
