Historical-Cities is first and foremost a Lyon-based association that has been working successfully for 11 years to promote the heritage of Lyon, UNESCO sector, on the Internet :

Historical-Cities is also a new project for a federation of Internet sites which, with a view to cultural development, promote heritage and tourism in historic districts of different European cities, combining information for visits and aerial photos, cartography, 3D models, 360° panoramas and galleries of old or new photographs. This new project, which starts in 2018, is of course supported by the eponymous association.

The aim of the federation is to ensure a wider audience for European heritage and to become a meeting place for the exchange of cultural heritages, a lasting and effective memory accessible to all on the Internet, while respecting specific cultures.
