You really have to look close to see what's real and what's painted in this neighborhood. The major mural is the most interesting. Each person in the mural is from Lyon and many of these people are known worldwide. The technique is fascinating.

Very good street art. Especially good is reading the history of the art across the years. Amazingly realistic and detailed. Worth the long walk. The rest of the area is uninteresting.

This is a good top if you want to learn about the silk innovations mae in Lyon. It also documents the history of the battles of the Lyonnaise silk workers.

East to get to on the metro, just a few minutes walk from the nearest station. Interesting mural and fun to see. Impressive perspective and feels very alive when you see it. Worth a short visit.
