These historic buildings originally sheltered a religious community, the Convent of the Sisters of St. Elizabeth (seventeenth century), and after the Revolution, they became the speaker of the Veterinary School Lyon. The current layout of the premise is due to the architect Chabrol (mid-nineteenth century). Finally, in 1980, it was updated and expanded to accommodate the CNSMD Lyon.
