Claude Chappe invented this means of communicating via the airwaves using signals, but this tower would have been completely forgotten if an association had not renovated it in 1990. The enthusiasts organize guided tours on the first Sunday of every month. As the tower is up in the hills, you not only get to learn about telegraphy but can also appreciate the magnificent view of Lyon.
