At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The passageways of Lyon.

Located in the district of the Old Town or Vieux-Lyon for the most part, the traboules of Lyon are a feature which is unique to Lyon. These traboules are passageways built between buildings.

In order to have as much space to use as possible, there were very few cross streets. The solution was to build traboules which allowed people to pass from one street to the next without having to make a detour.
This simple and practical solution would also be adopted later on the slopes of the Croix Rousse area.
There are many traboules to be seen in Vieux-Lyon: you will find them if you take a stroll around Place du Gouvernement, rue Saint Jean, Quai Rolland or rue de la Bombarde.
