I've seen a mural like this in Quebec City and the Mur des Canuts is just as impressive, but different because it's more than one large mural - it's spread out throughout a small area on a few buildings. Some look pretty realistic from afar!

Some great paintings that look very realistic at points throughout. It is an interesting curiosity that is worth the time to take a look at when you are on a site seeing tour of Lyon.

This wall is beautiful, and has been updated as time goes on to be relevant to the modern day. The wall itself is very realistic, and you can scarcely tell that it is a painting when looking back at photos! Just by the side of the wall are some pictures of the past paintings, which are very interesting to see... More

An interesting addition to the neighborhood and an interesting progression of history explained in English and French to the side. A nicely done work, impressively designed and executed and no grafitti in sight!

Found out about the murals on T/A. Went to Croix - Rousse, then walked down the hill, easy walking, with good photo opportunities. Plan your trip before you go, so you are able to find them along the way. I found other murals that I was not looking for, it's not a big area, but a pleasure all the same.

The silk museum is special. Our group paid a visit there. One lady gave us a talk in a small and stuffy room. She is knowledgeable and enjoyed her presentation. The silk came from China, but Frenchmen learned how to grow mulberry trees and to make silk. In fact, only Lyon was allowed to make silk for the royalty. Later... More

The silk museum is in a very unassuming building, but the information is fascinating. My husband & I took the metro to the closest stop. Which was a good thing as that part of Lyon is situated at the top of a hill. The museum tells the history of the silk industry in Lyon. Try to make the guided tour... More

I had no idea what expect when the B&B owner told me it was worth looking at. An ugly street corner has been turned into a work of art. It is not the only mural in the city, "Fresque des Lyonnais" is also very impressive. Don't miss this if you visit lyon.
