Title Vue d’une partie de la ville de Lyon. Du cote de la Saone, de l’Eglise de St. Jean, de l’Archeveche, el de Notre Dame des Fourvieres, sur la Cote.
Year ca. 1770
Description
View of the city of Lyon.
Fernand Braudel remarked, "Historians of Lyon are not sufficiently aware of the bi-polarity between Paris and Lyon, which is a constant structure in French development...from the late Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution".In the late 15th century, the fairs introduced by Italian merchants made Lyon the economic countinghouse of France. Even the Bourse (treasury), built in 1749, resembled a public bazaar where accounts were settled in the open air. When international banking moved to Genoa, then Amsterdam, Lyon remained the banking centre of France.
In 1572, Lyon was a scene of mass violence by Catholics against Protestant Huguenots in the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacres.
