Thanks to the Malraux law, old Lyon became the first "protected area" in France in 1964. This classification allowed the district, considered as the most beautiful Renaissance complex in the country, to be highlighted. Since December 1998, it is no longer only the 25 hectares of old Lyon that are protected, but 427 hectares of the historic centre of Lyon that are listed by UNESCO as World Heritage of Humanity.
At the confluence of North and South, the capital of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region intends to become the strategic gateway to the Greater South-East Europe. It has chosen to strengthen three innovative sectors in particular: health, cleantech (clean technologies) and digital technology. It has 5 competitiveness clusters, two of which are global. Lyon is the bridgehead for bio-industries and biotechnologies in Rhône-Alpes, but also for information technologies.
- Capital of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region: 521,000 inhabitants, 75,000 companies, 3rd largest city in France.
- Greater Lyon: 1.3 million inhabitants, 2nd largest industrial agglomeration after Île-de-France.

IBO21 at la Chapelle Trinité : http://www.lachapellelyon.com/
High place of Lyons social and cultural life in the 18th century, ideally located on the Lyon peninsula, the Chapelle de la Trinité stands out for its "grandeur and sumptuousness".
As soon as you enter the Chapel, you will be surprised by the architectural richness of this
Historical monument, desecrated since 1920 and entirely restored in the 1990s. The Trinité Chapel has a lot to offer visitors:
• an abundant light which crosses the picture windows of the side chapels to come to bathe the Great Nave;
• Sixteen baroque chandeliers which guide you towards the vault and highlight an iconographic program built around the representation of virtues;
• the decoration of the vault, enhanced by trompe l'oeil oculi;
• ten side chapels overlooked by galleries in a row revealing as many points of view on this building rich in history. The most curious can even find engraved on the marble balustrades, graffiti of pupils, three centuries old;
• and noble materials (Carrara marbles and Antwerp velvet ...), architecture with refined details (Tuscan pilasters, contemporary paintings with gold leaf), and in the choir, a superb altar that offers itself as a real baroque theater.
