The Palais de la Bourse
Place de la Bourse - 69002 Lyon 2ème
This 3-storey 3,600 m² building, which is symbolic of Lyon's economic history, was designed by the architect René Dardel.
Five richly decorated rooms relate Lyon's trading, industrial, financial and economic traditions.
Up until 1991, the Salle de la Corbeille, a jewel in Lyon's architectural heritage housed the Bourse de Lyon, which is dominated 25 m above ground level by an impressive allegory of the city of Lyon and its economic activity.
Its prestigious Salle de la Corbeille (845 m² with passageways) where Bourse de Lyon sessions were once held, is flanked by two storeys of arcades with imposing glass windows, and decorated in the style of the Second Empire.
Upstairs, the Ampère, Tony-Garner and Lumière rooms are lavishly decorated.
