Gardens and staircase of the Grande Côte - Lyon Festival of Lights 2017

It’s one of the gateways to the Festival of Lights.

At the top of the Croix-Rousse, the gardens and staircase of the Grande Côte are transformed by the urban landscape planning agency ‘Ilex’ with large mirrors that change the viewers’ perspectives.

Grande Cote had not been highlighted since 2014 and 2017 brings it back to sound of movie soundtracks.
