  • Finally I preferred it to the canuts. Maybe because we are paid the rise of the Red Cross in the rain. For Contemplatives.

  • It became a staple of the visit of the old Lyon. The fresco represents all the Lyon historical characters alive or dead. There is an explanatory sign. Very original and informative. Photogenic in addition.

  • The way ahead, stop: the lyonnaiserie can be found here, just before the docks: Bocuse, famous men, this fresco is very well done.

  • It's rather nice, just annoying it is next to a really busy street. When we were there, there was a traffic jam and we were standing in the fumes of all this cars driving a little bit further every time.
  • An excellent, captivating artwork. If you have the time, spend a good 10 minutes or so standing across the road looking at it, then another 10 minutes walking slowly back and forth right in front of it.
  • Great painting, let see how many people you can recognise.
  • Interesting, although not many characters that I knew.
  • Saying this mural is impressive doesn't do this justice. Especially the roof tiles, almost everything had us questioning if it was painted on or real. The artist here showed true talent and skill. You can easily spend 30+ minutes all of the detail of this work.

Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites. Near the breathtaking Parc de la Tête, the Tête D’Or district offers a quieter option away from the city center.
