St Exupéry

Perhaps one of the most famous people from Lyon ! This sculpture of Antoine de St Exupéry, writer of the 20th century and who wrote "Le petit prince", can be seen near "Place Bellecour". The writer is next to his favourite character. maybe they are waiting for... a sheep !

A book, my French fiance says, is a classic for childhood and a favourite of his.

The statue & photo are great... but I have to admit that I never read "Le petit Prince"... Shame on me !!

Le Petit Prince is a favourite of mine, even today. And this is a wonderful shot of the statue.
