History of the 8th district

Between history and metamorphosis, the 8th was forged around symbols: the rose, the cinema, the architecture of Tony Garnier, the theater and later the dance, while keeping its strong industrial footprint. Created a little over 50 years ago, it continues its economic and urban development. At Monplaisir, a visit of the Institut Lumière is essential for a discovery of the origins of cinema. In the neighborhood of the United States, the Urban Museum Tony Garnier unveils a must-see open-air museum.
