Monday Mural

May 2019 - Dijon France

If the ironwork throughout the Les Halles covered market in Dijon, France, reminds you of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, there is good reason. Gustave Eiffel, a native son of Dijon, designed the market in the 19th century. One of France’s largest and best-known markets, Les Halles is open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

This mural is opposite the market and was painted by Dominique Taraval in 1988.


  1. That's really neat! I love the "fer et verre" French architecture of the 19th century.

  2. What an amazing mural. The artwork mirrors the actual building. This was a wonderful find.

  3. The market building is beautiful and so is the mural. Thanks for participating Jackie.
