Boulevard de Grancy

Boulevard de Grancy
The Boulevard de Grancy is the only boulevard in Lausanne. Today this street is no wider than any other, so why is it known as a boulevard? A little more than a hundred years ago, some developers decided to create a vast thoroughfare right through the middle of the vines and to construct buildings. To give you some idea of its initial width, have a look at the oldest buildings, which are set back. This extravagant project was very quickly abandoned and the boulevard contracted.
