It is a bit away from most tourist places, but worth a 10 mis walk from Croix Rousse without any doubts! We`ve spent 20-30 mins here just enjoying the extremally detailed painting about the typical lyonaise life and took some great pictures.

If you want to take nice photos or just chill enjoying the art, a 15min will be enough for this! There are benches to rest a little.

My opinion is just a painting on the wall, not much to do around there ( maybe nothing ) and trying to get there by walk in , * sign * !
