Jardin de Rosa Mir
mason Julius Senis worked more than twenty years to create
sunken garden, dedicated to his mother, Rosa Mir.
The architectural structure is influenced by places where Jules
díEspagne Senis worked: The Alhambra in Granada, The
Montserrat in Catalonia, and Gaudi's buildings in Barcelona.
April 1 - November 30, Saturdays, 3 PM - 6 PM, but confirm that at the Web site.
87 Grande rue de la Croix-Rousse, Lyon. The garden is in the Croix
Rousse neighborhood, a short metro ride up the hill and to the north of
downtown Lyon. Do not confuse the street "Grande rue de la
Croix-Rousse" with the "Boulevard de la Croix-Rousse."
Take the metro to the Henon stop, go East on Rue Henon, and turn left
on Grande rue de la Croix-Rousse. Number 87 at first appears not to
exist, but it is actually an arched alleyway leading to the garden. The
garden is not on Grande rue de la Croix-Rousse, and besides, it's
sunken, so you can't see it until you enter it. In other words, if
you're driving, don't expect to drive down the street and see a garden.
