I think the title already says it - Nicely painted wall but I'd rather no make it an extra tour to visit. However ok if you happen to be in the Croix Rousse area.

Located in Croix-Rousse ,you can walk but it is better to use the metro to Henon and come back by foot. You should see it as there are many details . Especially the combination of real and painted Windows is very nice.

Certainly worth a little detour , this meters high painting in "trompe l'oeil" is just amazing! Quite unbelievable when you look at it that it actually hides a hideous FLAT wall ...

The mural is impressive. It's huge! Take some time to read the information at the corner of the building. I really love that the city took the effort to record down the changes in this neighbourhood.

This is a wall painting on a massive scale that shows the life and activities of the local "canuts" or silkweavers. From the metro walk left a few hundred mteres and you cant miss it.
