Historical Cities

Only the eastern part of this house is still standing; it was partially destroyed in the nineteenth century due to the expansion of the Montée Saint-Barthélemy and the construction of the St. Paul / Loyasse funicular. From the mount, you can admire the Renaissance staircase and the large arched galleries supported by massive columns. The well ironwork dates from the seventeenth century. The bust of Henri IV, on the first floor, dates from the nineteenth century. François 1st, in 1515, and Henry IV in 1600 are said to have stayed in this house that Claude Paterin, a Lyon judge, built during the reign of François 1st.
