Founded by the Romans in the first century BC, Lyon has played an important role in the religious and political development of Europe over many centuries. The city's unique architecture, with its narrow alleyways known as traboules, has led to its recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Lyon, France's third largest city, hosts the famous Fête des Lumières (Festival of Lights) and was the home of cinema pioneers Auguste and Louis Lumière, who patented their cinematograph in 1895 and are considered the world's first film-makers. The two brothers captured images of their beautiful home city that lies at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers.
Among Lyon's impressive buildings is the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, which attracts one and a half million visitors every year.
