Lyons is a great unknown to me : such a big town and virtually nothing significant in our French collective memory to deal with.

Looks like an average city, with some nice streets and alleys. I have been to Paris, Marseille and Nice but never Lyon, so it was interesting to see it. Is there any special square or avenue that stands out in the city?

Because Minato ku is not a photograph that tries to take beautiful pictures of the cities it only takes what he sees...
