We always enjoyed coming back to this area after a walk around town, it is so nice to stop for coffee and watch the world go by in such a beautiful square
About Place des Terreaux

In the heart of The Presqu'ile. It's dominated by the Fountain designed by Bartholdi. But a charming square and not as large as I had imagined. It is surrounded by beautiful buildings.
Amazing square with potentially an amawzing fountain but the fountian is still closed for maintenance as it has been for months! Cant wait to see it for real!
Square in front of the Hotel De Ville which contains the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts and the Bartholdi Fountain (close for rnovation).
MNy tourists do not go to this square...but the locals from Lyon spend time there around the beautiful fountain. Enjoy a cafe on the square near the fountain.
The pictures of this place got me most the likes on Facebook haha so obviously it is stunning. The buildings or the water fountain are quite impressive. I love this place and despite living in Lyon for some time now, we don't come here often...More
The fountain is under construction with a viewing panel to see the works progress. There is a cafe in the square and the Musee des Beaux-Arts is located across the way. There appears to be a number of kebab houses in the area.
Place des Terreaux is certainly a very nice square, lined with beautiful buildings but the famous Bartholdi fountain is under wraps for restoration til 2018 which pretty much mars the place...
The place is being renovated currently. The fountain is not here right now as it's being rebuilt. So the place does not have much interest for the moment. The fountain must be impressive though. But the place is not valued at all. Too bad.
Beautiful square with an amazing breathtaking fountain in Lyon, something you must see. Worth the hike to get there.
