Really impressive to see. The gathering of all different shops and windows from different times really adds colour and feel of Lyon to the streets. Beautiful mix of reality and painting.

Walk behind the yellow building facing the river, and you will be delighted with 5 stories of murals, highlighting famous Lyon residents, including Le Petit Prince and Paul Bocuse. Don't miss the lovely bookstore mural on the side of the building as well

Worth taking several minutes to check out the realistic painting on the sides of this building. Several famous people but mostly whimsical.
