about Lyon Roman Baths
The Lyon Roman Baths are thought to have been built in the second or third centuries AD.
The ancient bath complex would served ancient Lugdunum, as the city was known during the Roman period, when it was an important regional capital of the Roman Empire.
Only found in the 1970’s and then partially restored, they are hidden behind a set of modern buildings.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours!
