#13 of 288 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.

  • A great place to visit in Lyon, the drawing is stupifyingly well detailed. Every single character and building seems to come from a picture. When standing at 50m it just seem to be real. Event at 15m it still looks real. Astonishing work!
  • It's wall painting, quite unique, you could spend some time here !! It's fun to click yourself with the characters in the mural :-)
  • Loved being able to see the photos of it's transformation. The details and colors are astounding!
  • The changing of 3 different versions behind it is amazing. Recommend for foreign travelers to read the explanations nearby : ) to understand the creativity of French people
  • Tourist attraction dedicated to the poor weavers of Lyon. Even though they produced the most expensive fabrique in world, their employers payed them poorly and they had to live on a hill far from the center. Now it's kind of hipster quarter of the city and the huge graffiti honors the history
