Although slightly out of the way, if you have the time, it's something that you really need to see. Although only one (very big) wall, the artwork is astonishing. But there are other mural paintings hidden around Lyon.

By the end of our trip, around night, we decided to get up on the hill of La Croix Rousse and looked for Le Mur des Canuts. We were happy to see it but it's nothing extravagant (unless we missed something about it)

I was amazed by these painted buildings, You can hardly tell that the windows are all painted. There are at least four of these buildings that I visited in Lyon. One has famous people, another has books, and another has just ordinary windows. I highly recommend you take the time to see these buildings.

Well if you want to go just a little bit outside of the city center, which I recommend in any city you visit, this is a good pick. The wall painting was really nice in 3D and we took a buss there, we prefer bus since you will see more of the city that way.But of course the Henon metro... More

This kind of mural is very unusual, I believe many artists, architects and city officials put their hearts and tears on those marvelous murals. It is a must see.

This wall mural is not easy to find. The best way is to take the metro to Henon station and walk back towards Croix- Rousse metro station. There is only 1 road access to Croix Rousse and you will see this mural about 150m fom Henon Metro station. It is really a marvel to watch and the 3 dimensional effects... More

I was on a private tour and we walked up with commentary. Go if you have time as there are some picture worthy moments.

It is a bit away from the centre but worth the trip with the subway. Already from a distance you experience how 'real' the painting is. Only when beneath it you realize the real-life size of it all. A must-see in Lyon

So much work has gone into this, it's changed and been added to over the years and the artwork has got better and better. Easy to find as there is a metro stop nearby.
