The famous Parc de la Tete d’Or (Golden Head Park) in Lyon is the largest city park in France and is just behind this 4-star hotel. The park gets its name from an old legend which describes a very unique treasure which is buried there, a golden head representing Jesus Christ. You can get there easily from the hotel by crossing the entrance to the square of the Cite Internationale.
