One of many fine murals in Lyon. From the metro stop I asked a few people how to get to the mural and they helpfully pointed me in the right direction. I enjoyed sitting on the bench facing the mural. Too bad two local boys came and repeatedly kicked a ball against the mural - oh well boys will be... More

We were not looking for this. My wife and I had been walking in Croix-Rousse and decided to just take a random different route back down the hill. This wasn't on our to see list but it should be on yours. This is the best example of a large scale mural (one of the largest) I have ever seen. Make... More

Le Mur Des Canuts is a very nice evolving piece of modern art. First of all you need to get out in Henon subway station, follow the Boulevard des Canuts sign and when you walk upstairs you see the wall in front of you. It is nice to read the history of the wall. You need to sit and look... More

Take Metro on the Orange Line to HENON ( one stop after Croix-Rousse) and it is right there at the corner of the street.

It is truly amazing it literally looks like an actual 3D.When you take the photos of it with you in them you become a part of the... More

This is so unique and interesting, it's worth finding it for a look. It's so realistic, but it is difficult to find.

Definitely worth seeking out...it is like visiting an outdoor museum...but even cooler. Difficult to find but if you ask many people will steer you in the right direction.

We walked up the hill and the stairs from Lyon to the Croix Rouge area before finally finding this mural. Fortunately, a kindly old lady saw me looking at the map and walked with me the extra three or four blocks to find it. I would recommend taking a taxi to the mural and then walking back DOWN the hill,... More

There are a number of amazing trope d'oeil murals throughout the city of Lyon the best known being Les Murs de Canuts which is repainted every 10 years showing how the neighborhood has changed. The history of Lyon can be seen by the meals found throughout the city, however before entering into an establishment such as a bank, a bookshop,... More

There are a series of trompe l'oeil painted walls in Lyon. I particularly enjoyed the mur des Lyonnais, showing noted citizens through the years. It's a fun way to realize the history of the city, and the contributions of its citizens. The Mur des Canuts is also Interesting. It's located in the Croix-Rousse area (serious hills), and has been updated.... More
