Long Description:
In 1968, the demolition of the building of number 6 of the rue de la Bombarde because of its insalubrity, made it possible to highlight an architectural treasure. However, it will be necessary to wait until 2007 to see it open to the public. It is now a pleasant and quiet square in the heart of old Lyon. Covered with beaten earth, this square receives four benches to taste the calm. A lion of the Biennale was laid on the lawn of the garden.

Toutefois, il faudra attendre 2007 pour la voir ouvrir au public. C’est désormais un square agréable et calme au coeur du vieux Lyon. Recouverte de terre battue, cette place reçoit quatre bancs pour y goûter au calme. On a posé un lion de la biennale sur la pelouse du jardin.
