We went looking for this building in Croix Rousse and happened on it unexpectedly around a corner. You get a great view from across the intersection, but even more insight to the clever use of perspective by getting up close. The few simple historical images display the history of the building very well.

Some truly gifted painters were at work here. Every time you look at it you see something more. How many cats do you see? How many windows are real and how many painted to seem real?

It is a mural.. which is very big and look so real. Nice to see and take a few picture. But there is nothing much to see at the surounding area. Better take a metro the henoi then directly go to the mural and go back to the old city.

A must-see on the Lyon tourist trail! Very life-like and impressive artwork, a true Lyon gem! In the lovely neighbourhood of Croix-Rousse.

I love murals and this one is really special. You feel you can almost climb the stairs and touch the people depicted. To get there is also a good way to explore this neighborhood. It was a bit empty on a Monday afternoon in august so better maybe to go in the morning

...it's amazing. Detailed, beautiful and so much to look at. Take time to have a focus on it - it's really worth it. Thankfully a friend explained who we were looking at. If you can have a local give you detail, it adds to the understanding.

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.
