The museum is inside the castle that belonged to the family Lumière, the inventors of cinema. This museum opened 30 years ago and shows the birth of the seventh art through the work of this familly, including the Lumière cinematograph, which helped make the first films. It also traces the various stages of creating the film. Finally, it outlines the second major innovation of Light: color photography.
This basilica was built as a result of a wish made by the people of Lyon during the war against Prussia. The Prussians had invaded France and the local population had fled to the small chapel located near the basilica to pray to the virgin and ask for protection. After making this wish, Lyon's women promised to build a large church if they were protected from this invasion. The first stone was laid in 1872.
The Tête d'Or park is one of the largest urban parks in France covering a total of 105 hectares including 17 hectares of lakes. It is well known for its magnificent international rose garden which visitors come to admire in springtime and which is one of my personal favourites here. We also have France's leading botanical garden with more than 20,000 varieties. Finally, the locals come here for the huge African plain where zebras, giraffes, antelopes, lions and other rare species roam free in a special 3 hectare area
