The history of the Croix-Rousse district is closely linked to the silk and weaving. More than a district, it is a village where artists and designers love to evolve and where it is good to stroll. On the hillside and up to the plateau, squares, alleys and viewpoints are offered to the less breathless. The Croix-Rousse market from Tuesday to Sunday is also an attraction not to be missed.
First there was Willy Wonka and his chocolate factory… and now there’s Sébastien Bouillet!
