Of Paris’s six main train terminals, the Gare de Lyon may be the one with the most interesting history, (and that’s saying something given the interesting histories of all of the stations). Gare de Lyon was first constructed in the mid-1800s and then eventually burnt down in 1871. It was then rebuilt once again.
By 1900, Marius Toudoire renovated and rebuilt the train station yet again to celebrate the World’s Fair coming to the City of Light. Its 67-meter clocktower was unveiled to the public in 1901.
The Gare de Lyon, which was named after the city of Lyon, has been busy since then. Trains come from all over Europe to this east side train station, and a look at the list of trains reveals that every type of train runs through here from the local commuter train to the high-speed wonders. Its location gives visitors a close glimpse of the River Seine.
Like many of Paris’s other train station, the Gare de Lyon has become a bit of a celebrity in popular culture. In 1972, Gare de Lyon made an appearance in the film “Travels With My Aunt” by director George Cukor. It played a role in “The Mystery of the Blue Train,” an adaptation of an Agatha Christie book, which featured Hercule Poirot. Finally, the Gare de Lyon appeared in the films “Mr Bean’s Holiday” in 2007 and “The Tourist” in 2010.
