Saint-Paul is a quarter located in the 5th arrondissement of Lyon, France. It was named after the parish church. Located in the perimeter saved registered to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is one of the three parishes of the Vieux Lyon, the historic center of the city. The quarter is mainly served by the line C3 of the transports en commun lyonnais and the train station named Gare de Lyon-Saint-Paul. In 1880, the statue of Chancellor Gerson, sculpted by the burgomaster of Liège, Charles Bailly, was installed rue Saint-Paul, in front of the church.[1]
