Des Chartreux Garden
Cours du Général Giraud
This garden is a little island of greenery, on the edge of the Croix-Rousse area, just a few metres from the church of Saint Bruno. It is one of the nicest walks starts at passage Gonin leading up from quai Saint Vincent by the Rhône. It crosses the slopes of Croix-Rousse where you will undoubtedly see the many cats living around there. The passage leads to the garden's entrance near a playground. From the garden, there is a splendid view of the Fourvière hills and the banks of the Saône. Of course, at night, the view is even more beautiful when the city is all lit up. This garden is also the venue for music and cinema festivals where music from all over the world is played on Th evenings usually and films are shown in the open air free-of-charge on Sunday nights.
