Artist's Description

Montee du Garillan
Location: Lyon, France

I came here on a work related trip, however I have fallen in-love with this city, its people, its food, its wines. It is also called the City of Lights and it makes honor to that name, walking on the streets of the old town is a magical experience.

More info on Lyon:

Lyon, also known as Lyons in English (Liyon in Franco-Provençal, while former names include Lugdunum in Latin) pronounced [ljɔ̃] (help·info) in French, is a city in east central France. It is the third largest French city, the first being Paris and the second Marseille. It is a major centre of business, situated between Paris and Marseille, and has a reputation as the French capital of gastronomy and a significant role in the history of cinema.

Together with its suburbs and satellite towns, Lyon forms the second largest metropolitan area in France after Paris, with 1,783,400 inhabitants at the 2007 estimate, and approximately the 20th to 25th largest metropolitan area of Western Europe. Its urban area (Région Urbaine de Lyon), represents half of the Rhône-Alpes région population with 2,9 million inhabitants1.

Lyon is the préfecture (capital) of the Rhone departement, and also the capital of the Rhône-Alpes region.

Lyon is known as the silk capital of the world and is known for its silk and textiles and is a centre for fashion.

Lyon is also the international headquarters of Interpol and EuroNews.
