Palais de la Bourse

 

An outstanding city of Lyon building listed as a Historical Monument in 1994, the Palais de la Bourse is the perfect setting for all your major events. Architect René Dardel designed this three-story palace at the heart of the Lyon Presqu'île (peninsula). A typical late nineteenth-century construction in a classical style, it was inspired by the Lyon City Hall and the Palais des Beaux-Arts. Imposing, majestic and overlooking Rue de la République, the venue was designed to house the Chamber of Commerce, the Commercial Court, the Labor Court, the Companies of Stockbrokers, Silk Traders and Merchants, an Art and Industry Museum and stores. It was built in 1853 and inaugurated by Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie on August 25, 1860.
