:"Main article fr early histry: Lugdunum".
:"Main article fr the middle ages: Histry f Lyn"

Lucius Munatius Plancus, funder f Lyn
Lyn was funded n the Furvière hill as a Rman clny in 43 BCE by Munatius Plancus, a lieutenant f Caesar, n the site f a Gaulish hillfrt settlement called Lugdunn, frm the Celtic gd Lugus ("Light", cgnate with Old Irish "Lugh", Mdern Irish "Lú") and "dúnn" (hillfrt). Lyn was first named Lugdunum meaning the "hill f lights" r "the hill f crws". Lug was equated by the Rmans t Mercury.

Agrippa recgnized that Lugdunum"s psitin n the natural highway frm nrthern t sutheastern France made it a natural cmmunicatins hub, and he made Lyn the starting pint f the principal Rman rads thrughut Gaul. It then became the capital f Gaul, partly thanks t its cnvenient lcatin at the cnvergence f tw navigable rivers, and quickly became the main city f Gaul. Tw emperrs were brn in this city: Claudius and Caracalla. Tday, the archbishp f Lyn is still referred t as "le primat des Gaules" and the city ften referred t as the "capitale des Gaules".

The Christians in Lyn were persecuted fr their religin under the reigns f the varius Rman emperrs, mst ntably Marcus Aurelius and Septimus Severus. Lcal saints frm this perid include saints such as Blandina (Blandine), Pthinus (Pthin) , and Epipdius (Épipde), amng thers.

The great Christian bishp f Lyn in the 2nd century was the Easterner Irenaeus.
Lyn under siege (1793)

Burgundian refugees frm the destructin f Wrms by Huns in 437 were resettled by the military cmmander f the west, Aëtius, at Lugdunum, which was frmally the capital f the new Burgundian kingdm by 461.

In 843, by the Treaty f Verdun, Lyn, with the cuntry beynd the Saône, went t Lthair I, and later became a part f the Kingdm f Arles. Lyn nly came under French cntrl in the furteenth century.

Fernand Braudel remarked, "Histrians f Lyn are nt sufficiently aware f the biplarity between Paris and Lyn, which is a cnstant structure in French develpment" "frm the late Middle Ages t the Industrial Revlutin" (Braudel 1984 p. 327). The fairs in Lyn, the inventin f Italian merchants, made it the ecnmic cuntinghuse f France in the late 15th century. When internatinal banking mved t Gena, then Amsterdam, Lyn simply became the banking centre f France; its new Burse (treasury), built in 1749, still resembled a public bazaar where accunts were settled in the pen air. During the Renaissance, the city develped with the silk trade, especially with Italy; the Italian influence n Lyn"s architecture can still be seen. Thanks t the silk trade, Lyn became an imprtant industrial twn during the 19th century.
Lyn in the 18th century

Lyn was a scene f mass vilence against Huguents in the St. Barthlmew"s Day Massacres in 1572.

During the French Revlutin, Lyn rse up against the Natinal Cnventin and supprted the Girndins. In 1793, the city was under siege fr ver tw mnths, assaulted by the Revlutinary armies, befre eventually surrendering. Several buildings were destryed, especially arund the "Place Bellecur", and JeanMarie Cllt d"Herbis with Jseph Fuché administered the executin f mre than 2,000 peple. A decade later, Naplen himself rdered the recnstructin f all the buildings demlished during this perid.

The silk wrkers f Lyn, knwn as "canuts", staged tw majr uprisings: in 1831 and 1834. The 1831 uprising saw ne f the first recrded uses f the black flag as an emblem f prtest. The wrld"s first funicular railway was built between Lyn and La CrixRusse in 1862.

Lyn was a centre fr the ccupying German frces and als a strnghld f resistance during Wrld War II, and the city is nw hme t a resistance museum. "(See als Klaus Barbie.)" The "trabules", r secret passages, thrugh the huses enabled the lcal peple t escape Gestap raids.

Lyn"s gegraphy is dminated by the Rhône and Saône rivers that cnverge t the suth f the histric city centre frming a peninsula r "Presqu"île"; tw large hills, ne t the west and ne t the nrth f the histric city centre; and a large plain which sprawls eastward frm the histric city centre.

T the west is Furvière, knwn as "the hill that prays", the lcatin fr the highly decrated NtreDame de Furvière basilica, several cnvents, the palace f the Archbishp, the Tur métallique (a highly visible TV twer, replicating the last stage f the Eiffel Twer) and a funicular (a railway n a steep hill).

T the nrth is the CrixRusse, "the hill that wrks", traditinally hme t many small silk wrkshps, an industry fr which the city was nce renwned.

The riginal medieval city (Vieux Lyn) was built n the west bank f the Saône river at the ft f the Furvière hill, west f the "Presqu"île". This area, alng with prtins f the "Presqu"île" and much f the "CrixRusse" is recgnized as a Lyn#UNESCO UNESCO Wrld Heritage Site.

Place Bellecur is lcated n the peninsula ("Presqu"île") between the rivers Rhône and Saône and is the third largest public square in France and ne f the largest in Eurpe. Specifically, it is the largest clear square (i.e., withut any patches f greenery, trees r any ther kind f bstacles) in Eurpe. The brad, pedestriannly Rue de la République leads nrth frm Place Bellecur. The 2nd arrndissement has many f the finest ld residential buildings in Lyn and the area is knwn fr its cncentratin f ld Lynnaise Cathlic families, particularly in the Ainay part f the arrndissement.

East f the Rhône frm the "Presqu"île" is a large area f flat grund upn which sits much f mdern Lyn and mst f the city"s ppulatin.
Situated in this area is the urban centre f PartDieu which clusters the frmer Tur du Crédit Lynnais, "PartDieu Twer" tday, the Tur Oxygène, the Tur Swiss Life , the PartDieu shpping centre, and ne f Lyn"s tw majr rail terminals, Lyn PartDieu.

Nrth f this district is the relatively wealthy 6th arrndissement, which is hme t the Parc de la Tête d"Or, ne f Eurpe"s largest urban parks, the prestigius Lycée du Parc t the suth f the park, and Interpl"s wrld headquarters n the park"s western edge. The park cntains a free z that has recently been upgraded.

Several buildings are being cnstructed in PartDieu such as the Tur Oxygène and ther prjects such as the Tur Incity

Lyn"s early 17thcentury twn hall.
"Place Bellecur", the "fficial" center f Lyn

Like Paris and Marseille, Lyn is divided int a number f municipal arrndissements (smetimes translated int English as brughs), each f which is identified by a number and has its wn cuncil and twn hall.

Five arrndissements were riginally created in 1852, when three neighburing cmmunes (La CrixRusse, La Guilltière, and Vaise) were annexed by Lyn.

Between 1867 and 1959, the 3rd arrndissement (which riginally cvered the whle f the Left Bank f the Rhône) was split three times, creating a new arrndissement in each case.

Then, in 1963, the cmmune f SaintRambertl"ÎleBarbe was annexed t Lyn"s 5th arrndissement. A year later, in 1964, the 5th was split t create Lyn"s 9th – and, t date, final – arrndissement.

Within each arrndissement, there are a number f recgnisable "quartiers" r neighburhds:
*1starrdt : Pentes de La CrixRusse, Terreaux, Martinière/StVincent
*2nd arrdt : Crdeliers, Bellecur, Ainay, Perrache, Cnfluent

Fr several centuries Lyn has been knwn as the French capital f gastrnmy, due, in part, t the presence f many f France"s finest chefs in the city and its surrundings (e.g. Paul Bcuse). This reputatin als cmes frm the fact that tw f France"s best knwn winegrwing regins are lcated near Lyn: the Beaujlais t the Nrth, and the Côtes du Rhône t the Suth. Beaujlais wine is very ppular in Lyn and remains the mst cmmn table wine served with lcal dishes.
