Only Lyon - Tourism and Conventions


The Franco-Chinese Institute

China is a part of Lyon's history!

In 1920 Lyon was selected for setting up the only Chinese University outside China!

The Franco-Chinese Institute received students from 1921 until after the end of the second world war, 473 Chinese students, 11% of whom were girls.

Pass under the porch of the Fort Saint-Irénée, engraved with Zhong Fa Da Xue ideograms, and visit the exhibition on the Institute, illustrated by numerous library photographs (texts in French and Chinese).

Discover a whole unknown part of  history of Lyon and China via the destinies of seven former students.
