An interesting tribute to Lyonnais life - spot the various images which pay homage to Lyon and its famous people, including the Petit prince!

The whole wall of a building was painted to look like a street scene. You had a hard time realizing that it was only a mural. Worth seeing.

This one tends to get top billing, among several wall murals around Lyon. Although it is often referred to simply as Fresque de Lyon, it should correctly be Fresque des Lyonnais Celebres since it features famous personages linked to the city of Lyon. You can...More
