Built between the Rhone and the Saone rivers and protected by the Fourviere and Croix Rousse hills, Lyon traces its origins back several thousand years.
It was the capital of Gaul under the Roman Empire, a free city during the Middle Ages, and a prosperous economic center during the Renaissance.
These influences are apparent in the wealth and diversity of its architectural heritage. In fact, the Old City of Lyon and the slopes of Croix Rousse hill have been listed by UNESCO as World Heritage sites.
LaTour is located in the View Lyon, in the historic district.
