This one is on a busy corner in the heart of Lyon -- by they are spread all over the city. Strongly recommend to buy a guide book and visit at least a dozen. Together, they make a self-portrait of the great city -- I...More

This is a must when in Lyon. It only takes you 30 minutes to see it and admire this work of art. There are some famous people painted on that wall but you need to read about it or be told by someone, like we...More

Really impressive to see. The gathering of all different shops and windows from different times really adds colour and feel of Lyon to the streets. Beautiful mix of reality and painting.

The Fresque is stunning in detail and precision. Such colour and intricate detail make for an interesting thing to see and admire.

Walk behind the yellow building facing the river, and you will be delighted with 5 stories of murals, highlighting famous Lyon residents, including Le Petit Prince and Paul Bocuse. Don't miss the lovely bookstore mural on the side of the building as well

Worth taking several minutes to check out the realistic painting on the sides of this building. Several famous people but mostly whimsical.

Worth a visit if you’re in Lyon. Beautiful street art, and if you’re not aware of it, it acutally looks real! Not a big attraction. There were no people or turists there when I visited.

Went with a guide to see these buildings painted with Lyonnaise people, famous people, including the Little Prince. Each one has a story, a history, that is interesting in itself but to see the people intertwined in historical ways is brilliant. The painting is wonderful...More
