The geography of Lyon is marked by the confluence of the Ron (Rhône) and Sona (Saône) in the southern part of the historical center, forming a kind of peninsula.
The two big hills, one to the west and one to the north of the historical center of the city are the Fourvière hill to the west, where the Notre-Dame de Fourvière cathedral, the episcopal palace, the metal tower (a TV tower imitating the last section of the Eiffel Tower) are erected and a funicular and the hill Croix-Rousse to the north, the traditional hive of silk workshops and shops, an industry for which the city is famous.
The medieval town (Vieux Lyon) was built on the west bank of the river Saône at the foot of Fourvière hill, west of the peninsula. On the small peninsula (Presqu'ile) between Ron and Sona is the third largest public market in France, and one of the largest in Europe: Place Bellecour. In fact it is the largest public market free of obstacles (such as trees, lawns, etc.) in Europe.
In the modern city, east of Rhône, is the Part-Dieu urban center, which includes the former Credit Lyonnais Tower (the only skyscraper in central France), the Part-Dieu shopping center and the main station: Lyon Part-Dieu.
The city preserves an important cultural heritage, from the vestiges of the Roman era to the constructions from the 20th century. The most valuable part of the city, namely the Vieux Lyon district, Fourvière hill, 500-hectare Croix-Rousse hill, is part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1998.
A few names bear the name of the city worldwide: Antoine de St. Exupery, the author of "Little Prince", the Light Brothers - the inventors of the cinema, Rabelais - the author of Gargantua and Pantagruel, the medieval city "Vieux-Lyon" and its architectural jewels (Hotel Bullioud, Paterin, Gadagne, Philibert Delorme Gallery, Rose Tower ... ), the unusual "traboules" - secret passages during the Resistance, the Cathedral on Fourviere Hill, the Cathedral of St. Jean etc.
