Until the beginning of the 19th century, the Rue de Bourg, which is a pedestrian zone today, was one of the main thorough fares of old Lausanne. In those days the town only extended over three hills, those of Cité, Saint-Laurent and Bourg.
That’s another spot I’m particularly fond of as a photographer. A lover of architecture, the buildings of the Rue de Bourg remind me of Parisian architecture: it’s like being teleported for anything from a few minutes to a few hours.
Being mainly occupied by patrician families, this street was an elegant and sophisticated meeting place. If you look up, you will see the town’s loveliest group of 17th- and 18th- century houses. Today this street is popular with keen shoppers.
