The covered Claude-François Ménestrier Passage owes its name to a Jesuit and historian born in Lyon 10 March, 1631. Designed by the Jesuit architect, Father Martellange, it runs through the Ampere school buildings, formerly Trinity College founded in 1519, and connects Rue de la Bourse to the Quai Jean Moulin. The nearby Trinity Chapel was the site of the first Italian republic proclaimed by Napoleon on 18 January, 1802.
