Lyon - FRANCE - UNESCO #872
A Portuguese postcrosser that I've met in the official forum went to the Historic French city of Lyon for a well deserved vacations after getting his Master degree - first of all let me congratulate you for your recent diploma - and he sent me this beautiful multiview card of that amazing city that I've visited 4 years ago and really loved. Thank you very much Tiago for remembering me and help my UNESCO WHS collection, this is the 228th, only 753 to finish. This postcard took 6 days to arrive!
The long history of Lyons, which was founded by the Romans in the 1st century B.C. as the capital of the Three Gauls and has continued to play a major role in Europe's political, cultural and economic development ever since, is vividly illustrated by its urban fabric and the many fine historic buildings from all periods.
