Lyon was the centre for silk production and weaving in the 1700-1800's. Long covered passageways kept the silk dry as it was transported around town. Many of these traboules are now accessible by tourists and make an interesting excursion. This is the door to the long one in Vieux Lyon.

Many murals have been painted on the sides of buildings and crop up when least expected.
