Cleverly painted with much to see and note. You must give yourself time to see the detail of the murals.

I must say i almost walked right past this wall. Thank goodness there were a few people taking pictures there. Its a lovely mural and worth going there. Its close to the metro station as well in case you use public transport.

There are several well-executed wall murals around Lyon, many of them tucked away in the less touristy parts of Lyon. The best, in my view, is Le Mur des Canuts, but mainly because there are explanatory posters describing the history of this mural. It is...More

As a painter, I have a real admiration for murals and this one is particularly well done. Go there if you have the chance.

If these walls could talk, they’d tell you the story of Lyon. The Painted Walls of Lyon are a distinctive art form that brings art, history, and light to the districts of the city. The history of how the murals came to be is traced...More
