10 Pl. Antonin Poncet,
69002 Lyon

On the Place Antonin Poncet, where the Hospital de la Charité stood, next to the Grand Hôtel Dieu, is now the Hôtel des Postes. You can admire a monumental fresco created in 1937 by Louis Bouquet. Conceived as an allegory of Lyon's international influence, at a time when the city was suffering from economic difficulties, the fresco depicts a world still deeply affected by colonization.
