Traboules Trail 1/1 by Tripoto

Traboules Trail

Scattered around the old town these secret passageways connect one building to another with long arch passes and spiral staircases. Were commonly used by the locals in the medieval times to get navigate through the city without actually going out. Most of them are privately owned, so unless you take a tour it can be pretty tricky to sneak into someone’s house. Most of them are situated in Vieux-Lyon and one of the most famous Traboule of the Voracious Court located in the Croix Rousse district.
