This place is up a hill but worth visiting as there are really nice murals here. A great photo stop. Recommended.

This the largest mural in Europe!
Aug 2019
There are several areas in Lyon with huge wall paintings or murals. And they are all fantastic. We managed to see a few, although we had to walk around quite a bit. Le Mur Des Canuts is one such mural and it is painted on a huge wall. It was created in 1987. It represents a day in the life of silk workers who worked in the neighbourhood and who had taken protest action against their poor working conditions in the 1800s. Apparently the mural is updated every now and then. This is a great piece of art and is really part of the local area and its culture and traditions.

I love this artwork. It is is clever, detailed and amazing. It looks great close up and looks fantastic from a bit of it further away. The history of the wall is interesting as well and is displayed nearby.

The wall artists have done a miraculous job.

All Lyon visitors must see them

Europe's largest mural

A fabulous mural with lots of beautiful details. This is the mural that started Lyons urban murals tradition. Take your time to study it and you will see all kinds of interesting details.

One of the three main murals in the city?
Oct 2019
We took a metro to Henon metro stop and walked for a short while to find this huge mural. Loved it. There are nice restaurants and not so touristic around Croix Rouge if you end up there at lunch or dinner time, Bistrot Orcia nearby Croix Rouge metro stop for example.

Such a real 3 D Fresque
Sep 2019
Our lovely Lyon Greeter Guide, Jean Claude, actually brought us here in his own car which otherwise we would not have found it at all. The mural is absolutely amazing--3D looking while it is not. About once every 10 years, the artists change the mural to reflect the aging of the people in the mural. To think, the building once was just all black and ugly in a beautiful neighborhood and now, this piece of art is a joy to see every minute of the day!

Beautiful Addition to a Blank Wall
Sep 2019
We visited this area with the Lyon Tram as it is a hike on foot. This mural is exquisite and there are many others in this area. Hurry for the artists of the world who sometimes just need a blank canvass.
