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.

  • This place is up a hill but worth visiting as there are really nice murals here. A great photo stop. Recommended.

  • Something you must see in Lyon, a reel piece of artwork. The 3D details are amazing, really realistic.

  • This is a wonderful and detailed mural painting in Lyon. Starting with an idea to use the mural paintings to decorate a huge blind facade and its advertising hoarding in 1986, and after a couple of times to record the new changes, Mur des Canuts turned out a famous picture spot in Lyon time by time. I highly recommend this as a place to visit, it’s definitely worth the time to go there.
  • Amazing art. Can seat on one of the benches on site and watch this piece of art. Easy to reach by Metro.
