Located in Croix-Rousse ,you can walk but it is better to use the metro to Henon and come back by foot. You should see it as there are many details . Especially the combination of real and painted Windows is very nice.

Certainly worth a little detour , this meters high painting in "trompe l'oeil" is just amazing! Quite unbelievable when you look at it that it actually hides a hideous FLAT wall ...

The mural is impressive. It's huge! Take some time to read the information at the corner of the building. I really love that the city took the effort to record down the changes in this neighbourhood.

Too many large cities around the globe seem to undervalue the artistic representation of their own culture. Lyon has created some very unique fresco wall paintings, all done with consumate expertise and a touch of humour throughout.
