History of Caluire and Cuire...

Often called only Caluire, Caluire-et-Cuire is the result of the unification, in 1797, of the city of Caluire and the Cuire district of the 4th arrondissement of Lyon.

During the Second World War and the Resistance, the city of Caluire-et-Cuire had an important role. In June 1943, Jean Moulin and 7 other resistance fighters were arrested by the Gestapo during a secret meeting.

It is in the street that now bears his name that he took his last steps as a free man. The public elementary school also bears his name.

In 1984, the metro C linked Lyon to Caluire-et-Cuire.

Districts of Caluire-et-Cuire

Le Bourg

The Bourg of Caluire-et-Cuire has undergone a complete redevelopment in recent years. With many shops, it is the central point of the city. An impressive building is located on rue François Peissel: the Town Hall built in 1846. It houses a police station and the municipal library. The Bourg and its village atmosphere is also residential with many buildings and townhouses.


Located between the Bourg and the 4th arrondissement of Lyon, the Cuire district benefits from the metro which connects it directly to downtown Lyon. Over time, the buildings and houses have been embellished by major renovations and old buildings have been rehabilitated into luxury condominiums.

Cuire Le Haut is located at the level of Place Jules Ferry. The recently renovated quays offer long walks along the Saône. The city's rowing clubs have set up shop there. A very nice address of the Paul Bocuse brasseries is located in this area: the Fond Rose restaurant. On the Rhone side, the Margnolles district reflects the same atmosphere with a more urban touch.


The Saint-Clair district is mainly characterized by its large shopping street. Running along the Rhône for a few kilometers, this district has been completely opened up thanks to the redevelopment of the river banks and the construction of the footbridge that leads directly to the Cité Internationale district.


The Montessuy district is nicknamed the "Mont de dessus" because it overlooks the Rhône and offers a panoramic view of Lyon and the Alps. It is located just above the Saint-Clair district.

In the 70's, the architect René Gagès wanted to make Montessuy a new district with the construction of many residences but also local shops.
