Le Mur Des Canuts, Lyon

(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Le Mur Des Canuts transforms an ordinary street corner into an art gallery. Murals dot, and sometimes cover, the walls with depictions of the everyday people frozen in a moment. You may find a baker bringing her bread out to cool, a businesswoman rushing to work, or a child playing. All of the images reflect the dynamic energy and humor of the city in which they’re painted. Le Mur Des Canuts is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Lyon Edition.

  • Funny, we expected to see a crap, instead we were happy we went there, we took a few pictures funny! Perhaps one of the best things in Lyon

  • The neighborhood logically a little creative bobo nerd has proved very disappointing! A legend. Now the wall is impressive and will hold the eye of photographers but nothing else. .. so if you're motivated enough.

  • Amazing artwork! They also have photos of how it looked previously when it was first painted.
  • Amazing, hadn't realized it was an actual painting until i touched it. Great wall of art
  • Belle oeuvre en trompe l'oeil.
  • Worth a detour, no wonder this is one of the most photographed spots in Lyon. On the left side of the building there is a set of panels documenting the changes to the paintings over the years.
  • Possibly the best painted wall in the whole Lyon. Loved the hallway documenting the changes over time in order to better represent the neighborhood. :)
