Hotel de Ville is Lyon’s city hall and one of the largest historic buildings in the area. The interior still operates as the city hall, but the exterior stands as a grand sentinel flanking a main square. Its 17th- and 18th-century edifice is worthy of admiration. The building has been classified as a Monument Historique since 1886, about 250 years after the builders broke ground. Notice the half relief of Henry IV n the middle of the facade; this was once a relief of Louis XIV. However, during the French revolution King Louis was removed from the facade. A blank spot stood on the spot until an the image of Henry replaced him during the restoration.

  • A very fine piece of 17th century French architecture. The rooms inside are really beautiful, a little over the top for my liking, but very stately. All about show, the workmanship and attention to detail is amazing.
  • The architectural beauty stands in awe of the Square. The picture tells it even without seeing it.
