In the southern part of Lyon's Presqu'île peninsula, the 2nd District borders the 1st District in the vicinity of Saint-Nizier Church. The interior of this fifteenth century church is a fine example of the Gothic Flamboyant style. Running alongside the Saône and the Rhône, the district stretches to the confluence of these two rivers. This area deserves a special mention, as it lends its name to today's "Lyon Confluence" project, which involves transforming all of the area located to the south of the Perrache train station with the creation of new public leisure areas to replace the former docks that once were home to Lyon's wholesale market.

The proximity of the railway station Perrache historically justified these facilities. Now moving towards the railway station Part Dieu has changed all that district. As the "convergence" is not realized, Perrache marks the practical limit south of the borough. Indeed, it is between 1 and Perrache district that is the commercial and cultural, center Place Bellecour, majestic assembly center opening by Bonaparte on the Bridge on the Saône Vieux Lyon to the west, the streets of the Republic and Edouard Herriot north and Terreaux, the 3rd and 7th districts to the east of the Rhone by the bridge of the Guillotière and the South to the streets Perrache by Victor Hugo and of Charity.

These lines mark the economic vitality of this central part of the city of Lyon. Here we find many stores that crowd the Lyonnais and the inhabitants of the region. If you discover Lyon, the regional capital, you will not miss the area and its resources.

If you are interested in culture or history, we recommend you some places of the district as the Hotel Dieu, the next architectural renovation is promising even if his medical history is moving towards more specialized areas remote from downtown.

Célestins theater, built in the 1880s, typical of the Italian Theater. Place Bellecour itself, interesting because of its size and the famous equestrian statue of Louis XIV, the work of the sculptor François-Frédéric lyonnais Lemot dating from 1825. In the vicinity, the Grande Post Office was built in place of the Charity Hospital built in 1617. Between Bellecour and Perrache and closer to the Saône, you will not visit the district Ainay with the Basilica of Saint Martin Ainay which dates from the twelfth and is a striking testimony of the Romanesque period in this region.

Finally the banks of the Saône are of outstanding beauty and you will not fail to admire the view of buildings on both sides that looks like colored Italian cities recalling that the historical influence of that country and its culture in Lyon.
