Mur des Canuts transforms an ordinary street corner into an art gallery. Murals dot, and sometimes cover, the walls with depictions of the everyday people frozen in a moment. You may find a baker bringing her bread out to cool, a businesswoman rushing to work, or a child playing. All of the images reflect the dynamic energy and humor of the city in which they’re painted.

  • Impressive mural with a lot of details showing local characters. Definitely worth a visit. Best viewpoint to catch all the details is at one of the tables from the bar close by with a refreshing beer.
  • Amazing art. Can seat on one of the benches on site and watch this piece of art. Easy to reach by Metro.
