A tradition in Lyon
Since the 19ᵉ century, the people of Lyon have been placing luminous lights in their windows on 8 December. Originally religious, the tradition has evolved over the centuries to become a real popular festival.
The illuminations and animations scattered in the heart of the city now attract many tourists, both French and foreign: the 2021 edition thus attracted no less than 2 million visitors during these 4 exceptional evenings.
