Fodor's Expert Review Musée Urbain Tony Garnier

Presqu'ile and the Croix Rousse District Museum/Gallery

Built between 1920 and 1933, this project (also known as the Cité de la Création), was France's first attempt at low-income housing. Tenants have tried over the years to bring some art and cheerfulness to their environment: 22 giant murals depicting the work of Tony Garnier, the turn-of-the-20th-century Lyon architect, were painted on the walls. Artists from around the world, with the support of UNESCO, have added their vision to the creation of the ideal housing project.
