Architectural Landmarks in Lausanne - Le Flon

Before being the animated district of Lausanne, the Flon is in fact a river flowing through the valley of the same name. In the 18th and 19th centuries, businesses requiring water, such as tanneries, settled near here. But starting in the second half of the 19th century, the channeling and vaulting of the river started and now, the valley has been partly filled so that even the first row of arches of the Grand Pont have been buried. Since the 2000s, the district is one of shopping, restaurants and entertainment.Interestingly, all buildings have as a maximum height the depth of the valley !
