Facing you is the painted wall "The Library of the City." It was produced by the Cité de la Création and figures Lyon writers, such as Frédéric Dard, and excerpts from their writings. On the ground floor, three shops and a postman in trompe l'oeil are represented. Painted walls have become a symbol of the city and are the third reason why tourists visit Lyon after Fourvière and Old Lyon.
