Located in France’s third largest city, Lyon, Croix-Rousse is a district known for its vibrant culture and historical buildings, which have given Lyon the distinction of being a UNESCO heritage city. Lyon is the capital of Rhone-Alpes region and has also been recognised as the second largest metropolitan area in France. Located north of Presqu'ile, Lyon’s Croix-Rousse is known as “the hill that works,” a reference to the silk workers who moved their workshops from Vieux to Croix-Rouss, which remained a silk-making district until the 19th century.
