A first stop when visitors come to town, this is the best Fresque among many in Lyon. Beautifully done, large, and with a legend to identify the influencers in Lyon's rich history. Highly recommend.

Lyon is famous for its many murals and this prized mural in Lyon’s 1st arrondissement, very close to the banks of the river Saône and celebrating the achievements of some of the local people, is our personal favourite. The lifespans of the people depicted is...More
