Festival Of Lights Lyon 2018

From December 6th to 9th, the city will shine his thousand lights for the famous Festival Of Lights Lyon 2018. On this occasion, the city walls come to life with light and music shows.

The Origins of the Festival

In 1643, when the South of France was struck by plague, an Alderman promise to pay tribute to Virgin Mary if Lyon was spared. In 1852, it became a popular festival when a statue of the Mary was erected next to the Basilica and spontaneously the people put a candle outside on their windows. Today the candles became real artistic light shows and  the Festival of Light Of Lyon attracts millions of people.
