Le Mur Des Canuts, Lyon

(4.7/5 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.

  • one discovered this fresco! a trompe l'oeil made by inspired artists: expect other mayors to liven up the walls, the cities... not to hide but to bring beauty into our cities!

  • What to spend hours to observe, the details are fabulous and so realistic. We we even had time to take pictures of our children "like sitting" markets. We had the chance to meet a lyonnais district who could give us very interesting explanations. Also in the dark because there is, a fabulous game of shadows and lights.

  • A little outside conventional circuits of Lyon (walking tours), if you are lovers of painted walls you will not be disappointed! Its area is impressive and the quality of the remarkable work.

  • 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. :)
