Park of the tête d'Or - Lyon

Beautiful English park which remains today the most beautiful urban park in France.

The building of "Le parc de la Tête d'or" began in 1857 and it took 5 years of work to realize this beautiful English park which remains the most beautiful urban park in France. The origin of the name "Golden head Park", is found in a very old tradition that a treasure, including the head of Christ in gold, is still somewhere under the ground.
