“Amazing trompe l'oeil mural”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We could not beleive thsi mural was on a flat wall, it was so realistically 3D. Huge and really impressive, it was well worth finding, even though it is not in the centre of Lyon. It is only a short walk from the metro station at Henon.

“Fun for pictures”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

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!

“Really interesting to see”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

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.

“Very realistic!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

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 the changes as time goes on.

“Delightful”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

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!
