A story about Lyon
Vieux Lyon, the Old Town, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as we wrote above, barely escaped total destruction!
At the start of the 1960s, Louis Pradel, Mayor of the city, considered demolishing the district to allow a motorway slip road into the heart of the city centre.
But some ‘defenders of memory’ such as André Malraux, opposed the project and Louis Pradel ended up abandoning it.
