Lyon - city of lights

Lyon is known as the city of lights, so it is unsurprising that the Fête des Lumières is held there. Every year since 1999, and for 4 days around 8 December, Lyon and its monuments are lit up with a thousand lights.

This festival pays tribute to the Virgin Mary, protector of the Rhône city. Thanks to this show, you can discover Lyon in a different light each year. 

The lights change every year, offering a unique show each year.
