Our Lyon Greeter guide took us there on the metro line so we came out facing Le Mur. Look carefully to see the characters and you to will be surprised. Well worth going up the hill. Le Mur des Canuts is an amazing work of art. Take time to study it and you will be rewarded.

Do not miss this wall. Take some time looking at the details. The perspective of the painting is amazing. Some objects in the painting seem very real.

We walked from the old city to this wall mural and I would suggest taking the Metro which has a stop very close by. The walk was quite steep and hot for us in the July sun. Once there we all really appreciated the scale and detail of the mural. It's a great example of turning an eyesore into a... More

My son and I took the metro to view the murals. A quick visit and we were back on the metro. We took pictures that we looked at later with my son "blending into the mural" Looks cool!

A really cool place to go and sit. You need to take your time to look at all the murals, to discover details, and enjoy the creativity! I was in Valparaiso, Chile, and really recommend the city if you enjoyed le Mur des Canuts. Too bad my phone had run out of battery... Hum...good excuse to come back to Lyon!

This was a real surprise during our stay in Lyon. At first sight, it looks like a real building, with real stairs, people, cars... Then you realize it is a great painting. Do not miss it!

We have walked by using google map to lead to this place. Before we see the highlight, graffiti giraffe on water piping was so cute. We then saw a tourist bus so that's it. It was so incredible mural which we have never seen before. It is so lively and humongous view. Splendid spot.

Since I spent a whole month in Lyon, I had time to go to Croix Rousse to see le mur des canutes. But if you're spending only a weekend in Lyon, there are a number of other things more interesting to see. Definitely not my favorite place in Lyon

Very impressive murals, wonderfully designed and beautifully painted. They are, rightly, a source of pride for the city. The tour bus commentary makes the point that they are never tagged by graffiti artists. I reckon this is because an authentic mural is a community statement and the whole community buys into it. It is a marker of territory. Here, it's... More
