Lyon's 'Hotel de Ville' (City Hall).

It has been built in 1646 by Simon Maupin, then restaured in 1674 after a fire that partly destroyed it... All the inside decoration and furniture had been changed during the Second Empire (1852-1870).

The City Hall is one of the numerous very interesting architectural realisations in Lyon's Peninsula (Presqu'ile, between the two rivers: Rhone & Saone.) Other exemples come from the Roman Empire, the middle-ages, the Renaissance, XIXht century, and of course modern realizations.

Lyon has a very interesting night lighting of its buildings, that I hope I showed here... In this place, there are 68 small fountains, in the ground. And a big one in the north, built by Bartholdi. The total number of fountains is then 69... that is exactly the number of the Rhτne's department wich Lyon is the main city.

One of my firsts night shots. But why this car just decided to stop there at that moment ??!
