Presqu’ile district

Local namePresqu’île
LocationLyon, France

The Presqu’île (French meaning peninsula, literally a combination of words "presque" and "île" is the heart of Lyon, France. Extending from the foot of the Croix Rousse hill to the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône rivers, it has a preponderance of cafés, restaurants, luxury shops, department stores, banks, government buildings, and cultural institutions. The 1st and 2nd arrondissements of the city are located here, along with the Hôtel de Ville. The spires of the church of St. Nizier, rebuilt from the 14th to the 16th centuries, are at the foot of the former Saône river bridge. Though the business centre is located to the east in the 3rd arrondissement, road signs pointing to the centre of the city take drivers to Place Bellecour in the 2nd.

This zone is served by the metro lines A , C and D
