The 8th District of Lyon (69008) is a rather extensive area in the far eastern part of the city. It is bordered in the east by the city of Bron, and in the north by the limit of the 3rd District at Cours Albert Thomas and Rockefeller Avenue, where Edouard Herriot Hospital (formerly Grange Blanche), the Lyon Medical School and the Léon Bérard Cancer Research Center are located. To the west is the 7th District, whose boundary is marked with railway lines, and to the north we find Boulevard des Tchécoslovaques. The southern part of the district provides direct access to the town of Venissieux.

Having recalled what is the medicine for this area, other tourist and cultural mark now that area once largely devoted to industrial. Not talking about not "old industrial wasteland" when referring to the many renovation projects in this neighborhood of Lyon as the next urban renewal Mermoz Nord centreline on this east-west as the Avenue Jean Mermoz an extension of Avenue Berthelot from Perrache. The tram T4, inaugurated on 20 April 2009 and called "green line and flowers", offers a bucolic across the borough thanks to the lime, trees, pagoda, trees and other plant varieties that punctuate the line and the host to the season. It will allow quick access to downtown in 2013 putting the station at Part-Dieu in less than a quarter of an hour of the historic district of the United States devised a century ago by the visionary architect Tony Garnier as Ideal City. The Musée Urbain Tony Garnier, with its gable wall of 24 renovated buildings of the City of low-cost housing became media painted walls, is a further trace the history of this neighborhood.

Mermoz axis itself is marked by several cultural institutions such as the Media Marguerite Duras, instead of Bachut huge glass facade which gives an idea of the grandeur of the building: 2500 m² spread over 5 floors connected by wooden staircases suspended . La Maison de la Danse, which opened in 1980, was the first house of this kind in France, the culmination of a gamble a little crazy launched in 1977 by five choreographers Lyon. It now has an impact nationally and internationally.

Closer to the Cours Albert Thomas the visitor will not fail to make the journey aesthetic, scientific and historic history of the invention of cinematography by Louis and Auguste Lumière in 1895 that the museum offers Light. It actually enhances the brothers Louis and Auguste Lumière both as artists and as engineers and highlights the extraordinary Villa family called "Castle Light."

Finally we stopped a few moments near the buildings of the University Jean Moulin Lyon 3, the result of the successful transformation of what was a factory of tobacco and whose architecture has been remarkably preserved and embellished.
