What you'll do

Lyon is, just like Prague and Turin, a mystic capital full of symbols carved into its stones. Come and immerse yourself in the world of secret societies and other sects of the city to discover its hidden faces, as we go and meet the persona who made this place an international esoteric and mystic center.
From Maître Philippe and his incredible healing abilities, to the alchemists and other secret societies, Lyon is full of enlightened people of all kinds.
From the Cathedral of Saint John to the Rue du Boeuf, we will get to the district of Saint Paul and its Streets of the Jews. We will also go and meet two priests who made big headlines in their time because of their strange practices.
Finally, we will focus on the square of Terreaux with its magnificent City Hall and Fine Arts Museum, to finish our tour looking for the mystics of the Croix-Rousse slopes.

NOTE: the tour is open to children.

WARNING!! The tour is offered in French.
Please write in a message that you want the tour to be conducted in English, and I will manage to do so.

Trained in foreign languages and passionate about history, I've had a taste for travels and all types of discoveries since I was a child. Between unusual anecdotes, multilingual challenges and strange details, I love to take visitors on a tour to discover this beautiful city of Lyon which saw me grow up. I'm inviting you to get lost in the weird stories and the hidden corners which make the Capital of the Gauls unique and thrilling.

Visite captivante du début à la fin, les maîtres lyonnais de l'alchimie se dévoilent dans les ruelles du vieux Lyon et l'histoire de la ville "que deux fleuves arrosent" s'éclaire de lumières que peu connaissent. Et Nicolas partage sa passion richement documentée avec générosité, un grand merci !

Nous avons passé une soirée savante sur un sujet que nous ne connaissions peu, le Lyon mystique. Nicolas maîtrise parfaitement le thème de la soirée qu’il transmet avec passion. Son savoir nous a vraiment captivé toute la soirée.

Nicolas est un puits de connaissances sur l'histoire de Lyon et de France. Un passionné passionnant qui nous a émerveillé pendant cette balade mystique à la découverte des secrets historiques de Lyon. C'est un superbe orateur, je recommande chaudement cette expérience pour les Lyonnais et les touristes qui souhaitent découvrir la ville sous un autre angle. Très qualitatif, pertinent, et les vues de la ville de nuit sont splendides. Merci Nicolas pour ce superbe moment ! Lilly, Cloé et Elsa.
