Around Lyon Hills (Rhone-Loire)


The history of the Monts du Lyonnais dates back to antiquity. The region was then inhabited by the Gauls, who cultivated grapes and forests. The Romans later made improvements to the vineyard and developed the region. In the Middle Ages, the Monts du Lyonnais were an important wine-growing center. Wines were exported throughout Europe. The nature of the Monts du Lyonnais is rich and diverse. There is a wide variety of animal and plant species found there. Forests are home to deer, boars, roe deer, and many birds. Vineyards are an important habitat for insects, birds, and bats.
