Photographer's Note

Vieux (old) Lyon is hidden behind the large more modern waterfront buildings.
In 1954 Vieux Lyon became the first site in France to be protected under the Malraux law to protect France's cultural sites. There are a few examples of Gothic architecture and Romanesque buildings. The current version of the cathedral dates from a re-build in the 11th and 12th centuries. (Thank you Wikipedia).
There are plenty of interesting old doors. This one (despite the graffiti) is still quite beautiful, although not in use when I was there.

Best in the large view.
