Le Mur Des Canuts, Lyon

4.6
#13 of 293 in Things to do in Lyon
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.

  • Seen by a rainy day. J "moderately enjoyed but maybe I'm not a contemplative. Nice book anyway but a little impressed.

  • Adorning a wall of one of the most famous districts of Lyon, he is to see... don't forget to stroll through the small streets of the Croix-Rousse a small city within a city, even though this neighborhood has lost its charm with a galloping urbanization

  • 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.
  • Beautiful mural, feels like an illusion. However on the outskirts of lyon which makes it hard to reach, especially by bike (with barely any roads you can bike).
  • 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.
  • This is so cool! Stumbled upon it walking around, and was kinda blown away.
  • 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!)

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.
