Île Barbe

Île Barbe (barbarian island, or maybe island beard) is a small island in the Saône river on the north side of Lyon. It was originally a monastery, but I am not sure what it is now. The north 3/4ths of the island is closed off behind giant fences, but the south side is a nice little park connected to both sides of the mainland by an uncomfortably skinny bridge (that is open to vehicle traffic too).

The area around Île Barbe is kinda cool too. I especially like this.
