These shortcuts, in the form of internal passage, allow to communicate from a street to the other one by crossing one or several buildings and run. Besides their picturesque aspect, they conceal architectural curiosities and often miracles.
Trabouler , from Latin " Trans ambulare " means " pass through " . In large numbers on the slopes of the Croix-Rousse, they were mainly used to bring back the silk traders down the hill without exposing them to the elements.
