Le Mur Des Canuts, Lyon

4.6
#7 of 37 in Sightseeing in Lyon
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Great wall painted, details are realistic mandatory visit to move to Lyon. Feasible with the little train which leaves from the Town Hall.

  • So nice to see. One of the coolest street art places of this wonderful city. Totally recommend to go for a walk and admire its beauty. The city has such a strong character.
  • Very intersting stop, particularly taking into account its history and the fact they have been updating it every few years (including making each character age with every update!)
  • Impressive! This mural is a bit out of the way, but very much worth the extra walk (uphill!) to see. The artist did a wonderful job mixing the real windows with the painted ones. A very unique piece that gives great insight into life in Lyon.
  • Very nice use of a otherwise boring wall, its a colourful glimpse into life in Lyon. I wouldn't explicitly come in my first visit in the city but it's worth to do while exploring the Croix Rousse
  • Amazing artwork! They also have photos of how it looked previously when it was first painted.

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.
