Lyon and the Alps Sights



Maison du Crible Review

This 17th-century mansion is one of Lyon's oldest. In the courtyard you can glimpse a charming garden and the original Tour Rose—an elegant pink tower. In those days, the higher the tower, the greater the prestige. This one was owned by a tax collector. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose (the more things change, the more it's the same thing).
