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.

I went to this spot just to see this wall and was definitely worth it. I combined it by walking though the area and also going to the Ninkasi bar (bar of French special beers). it was like 10 minutes walking from the metro station, so pretty ok and nice walk. Was nicely made, I had not seen anything like... More

We saw these murals on a bus tour, so it was literally a drive-by attraction. It was very interesting, but after I saw it I wasn’t disposed to return for a closer, more leisurely inspection of the artwork. I agree that Le Mur Des Canuts is not a destination attraction like Lyon’s Fresque des Lyonnais.

The one near the Saône river including all famous characters from the city of Lyon is more interesting, but this one is quite spectacular in its perspective. Worth a look if not a trip

We saw something very similar in Quebec. Lyon was not as impressive but a fun bit of history and well done.

Located not far from Hanon metro station or in the walking distance of Croix Rousse station. It's nice and fun to take a photo of the wall.

We spent about 30 minutes admiring this piece of art. What was interesting in particulat to see how it has changed over time: how the buildings have been renovated as well as the people having got older! From now on, if I see an ugly concrete wall, I'll think of it as a lost opportunity!

One of several murals in Lyon, this one is really impressive. It's the third mural done on this building wall and recognizes the city's silk workers (canuts).

An amazingly realistic, colorful, vibrant work of art. I could spend hours looking at it and admiring the little details. Indeed, I doubled back during my walk in the area just so that I could take one more look. Highly recommended.

While understated, Le Mur Des Canuts is one of the most impressive things to see in Lyon. And like most of the other worthwhile things to see in Lyon, it's easy to get to and it's free.
