What travelers say:

A particularly interesting sight in Lyon - Lyon murals. The most famous one is the Fresque des Lyonnaise, each of the balconies on the 7th floor has famous people, such as the inventor of the modern loom, the poet, the Michelin Samsung chef, the author of the "Little Prince", the inventor of the film, the Rumiel Brothers - in this sense The celebrities seem to be alive in front of you, with the frescoes so strong in their three-dimensional form that Lyon is still home to the movies.

Additional Information


On the wall of a seven-storey old building on the banks of the Saône, there is a 3D three-dimensional mural covering an area of 800 square meters. The mural depicts 24 famous historical figures in the history of Lyon, including religious figures, scientists, artists, etc. Some of them are scattered on the 9 terraces in the painting, and some are leaning against the open window of the room, as if they saw the state of their daily life. This is the famous "Lyonian fresco". If you're interested in taking a closer look, you can try to find where the Lumière brothers, "The Little Prince" and his author, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, all appear. There are also 6 figures on the first floor of the painting, they are ordinary citizens of contemporary Lyon. Of course, such a huge city mural must be a good place for tourists to take photos.
