Some history of The Gare de Lyon.
Before 1849, the Gare de Lyon was a simple station. However after extensive renovation and rebuilding,emerged the magnificent station we now admire with its huge clock tower and its impressive façade. It is only minutes away from the Latin Quarter. Inside the station are many hidden artistic gems such as the beautiful fresco created by Jean-Baptiste Olive. Both the exterior and the interior of this iconic building are well worth a visit.
