Le Mur Des Canuts, Lyon
(4.6/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Do not miss them it's beautiful! Children love see these walls. Several parents play with the children asking them to observe and find characters or objects.

  • The biggest fresco in Europe. Located on the Hill of Croix-Rousse on a lively crossroad between Boulevard des Canuts and rue Denfert Rochereau. This is a huge painted wall, which is a very realistic life is depicted in this quarter. As the show stands, installed in the arch House, starting with the 1986 year mural changed its appearance several times from the more simple to complex composition, which can be observed now. Impressive! No wonder the've gone here on foot, it was the end point of our route on the Hill of Croix-Rousse.

  • 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. :)
