The society that created this painting had also created several in Lyon, all outstanding for its precision. We had to do a double take on several parts of the paintings as it was very realistic. I recommend the one-hour tram-tour to visit this and other...More

Not sure that it is worth a visit on its own unless you have a fascination for this type of art (Mur des Lyonnais is more interesting with local historical personalities) or are already visiting the hill. Take the C subway all the way to...More

It's a good painting in a wall, but I don't recomended to visit the area only for this painting. It's not worth it.

A must when visiting Lyon. Stunningly executed murals, which are touched-up every 10 years or so by various artists, to adapt this large artwork to modern times.

Located in the middle of residential area (the closest metro station is Henon) worth to stop by only if you are nearby. Don't make any special efforts if you are tied on time. Far away from city centre, Old historic part and Presqu'ile district. Nothing...More

Impressive paiting and we had nice photos. On the wall inthe left of the paiting there are interesting explanations about the history of this amazing wall. You can take the tram for short visit.

Yes, this did look very realistic, credits to the artists. I was thoroughly pleased with how they turned an ugly lifeless wall into a masterpiece. But if photos were what you were after, it is difficult to take a clean photo. Great to visit though.

The talented artists did such a good job with the wall murals! They looked so real and the perspective drawing is incredible. I tried for so long to discern what was real and what was painted. I struggled to imagine what the original building looked...More

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...More

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?
