The Rue des Marronniers is a street located in the Bellecour quarter, in the 2nd arrondissement of Lyon. It is a small paved pedestrian street famous for its many bouchons. It is served by the metro station Bellecour and many buses. The street belongs to a zone classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Located near the Place Bellecour and the Place Antonin-Poncet, the street was named after the trees that lined the square (they have since been removed) on its eastern side until the eighteenth century, after being named rue de Jérusalem, then rue Neuve des Basses-brayes. Its current name was chosen by consular decree of 30 September 1723. It was drawn in the early eighteenth century, during the construction of buildings to the east of the Place Bellecour.
