    At the Centre are given demonstrations of flat draw loom operation and also how a velvet loom works. We then saw how today's automated machines differ from the hand weaving we had just watched.

    View of the roman amphitheater at Fourviere, still used after 2000 years.

    Quite worth the trip: the illuminations on december 8th. The whole city is covered with candles on the windows.
