History of the Tête d'Or district

History of the Tête d'Or districtLegend has it that a solid gold head of Christ is buried somewhere in this 27-acre green space designed in 1857. A testimony to its glorious past and its Napoleonic splendor, the sector is a tribute to the magnificent architecture of the 19th century. Its checkerboard urban development plan is composed of large courtyards and wide avenues that add touch of elegance. For a long time, the district has appealed to Lyon's wealthy classes, who have taken up residence in large Haussmann-style apartments or in the few individual townhouses directly overlooking the park... truly exceptional properties. Residents appreciate this privileged proximity to the "green heart" of the city, as well as the peace and quiet and the presence of reputed schools, in particular the famous Lycée du Parc. The Tête d’Or sector is a haven of peace and tranquility, but a little too sleepy in the eyes of its detractors, who point to an absence of shops and the bustle of the city !
