Located in the middle of residential area (the closest metro station is Henon) worth to stop by only if you are nearby. Don't make any special efforts if you are tied on time. Far away from city centre, Old historic part and Presqu'ile district. Nothing interesting around. Nice to see and take couple pics no more. You will see more... More

Impressive paiting and we had nice photos. On the wall inthe left of the paiting there are interesting explanations about the history of this amazing wall. You can take the tram for short visit.

Yes, this did look very realistic, credits to the artists. I was thoroughly pleased with how they turned an ugly lifeless wall into a masterpiece. But if photos were what you were after, it is difficult to take a clean photo. Great to visit though.

The talented artists did such a good job with the wall murals! They looked so real and the perspective drawing is incredible. I tried for so long to discern what was real and what was painted. I struggled to imagine what the original building looked like. The exhibit on the side of the building show the humble beginning of the... More

We went looking for this building in Croix Rousse and happened on it unexpectedly around a corner. You get a great view from across the intersection, but even more insight to the clever use of perspective by getting up close. The few simple historical images display the history of the building very well.

Some truly gifted painters were at work here. Every time you look at it you see something more. How many cats do you see? How many windows are real and how many painted to seem real?

It is a mural.. which is very big and look so real. Nice to see and take a few picture. But there is nothing much to see at the surounding area. Better take a metro the henoi then directly go to the mural and go back to the old city.

A must-see on the Lyon tourist trail! Very life-like and impressive artwork, a true Lyon gem! In the lovely neighbourhood of Croix-Rousse.

I love murals and this one is really special. You feel you can almost climb the stairs and touch the people depicted. To get there is also a good way to explore this neighborhood. It was a bit empty on a Monday afternoon in august so better maybe to go in the morning

...it's amazing. Detailed, beautiful and so much to look at. Take time to have a focus on it - it's really worth it. Thankfully a friend explained who we were looking at. If you can have a local give you detail, it adds to the understanding.
