Well worth a walk up to the Croix Rousse area to see this spectacular mural of silk workers of the neighborhood in the 1800's. Looking at the mural of the buildings with windows and creepers- it all looks so real it's difficult to believe that it is all just an optical illusion created with paint.
One should also visit another spectacular mural at Quai St Vincent,(in another part of Lyon)which depicts famous people of Lyon

When you see the before and after you are really in awe of the work that went into it. It´s def a must-see. you can get there by public transport or take the tram city tour, if you have the Lyon city card, the ride is free.

Wow! Amazing! Exceptional! This left us in awe of the effort that went into detailing this wonderful mural. Yes, the photos capture its beauty but nothing can beat the pleasure of seeing it first-hand.
We had bought the two-day Lyon pass and took the ride to see this wonderful wall. We spent some time admiring the wall, reading about how it was done and taking photos.
It is a bit out of the way but do make your way to see it. You will be rewarded by its beauty, detail and return with pleasant memories.
And yes, we do recommend the Lyon pass to see Lyon. It was good value for money and we did see a lot of things. Wish we had more time!!!

Take some time off the beaten tourist tracking visit this wonderful illusion. Just off the Henon underground station, it looks and feels unique.
