On your right is the Minimes funicular sation. Five lines, that the Lyonnais call "strings" (for cable pulls), were built in Lyon. The first line, built in 1862, linked Rue Terme to Boulevard de la Croix-Rousse. The first funicular on the Fourvière hill was inaugurated in 1878 and still runs between Saint-Jean and Saint-Just. In 1900, two other lines were built to connect Saint Jean and the Saint-Paul station to Fourvière. You are here, at the so-called 'Minimes' funicular station on the Saint-Jean/Saint-Just line.
Just under the entrance of the funicular, admire the beautiful garden André Malraux.
