The Jardin Rosa Mir (English: Rosa Mir Garden) is a garden located in the center of La Croix-Rousse quarter in the 4th arrondissement of Lyon, and created by Jules Senis. It is housed in a courtyard of the building at No. 83 Grande Rue de la Croix-Rousse. It can be accessed through a path located at No. 87 in the same street.
This garden was created by Jules Senis (1913-1983), a tiler and bricklayer artisan, Spanish anarchist who had fled to France to escape the Spanish Civil War. He was diagnosed with cancer, but recovered after several years in hospital. During his illness, he had vowed to build a garden if he managed to leave the hospital, and thus created the garden Rosa Mir, to which he devoted the last twenty-five years of his life.

Beautiful little creation / garden; highly recommended....and free to get in. Think it’s only open on Saturdays.

Difficult to find. Enter at the driveway at 87 and you will see a gate on your left that leads to the garden. However it is only open for a few hours on Saturdays. So they don't seem to want many visitors.

Petit jardin secret, charmant et atypique. Beaucoup d'attente, mieux vaut venir à l'ouverture. La visite est rapide mais ça vaut le détour.

J'ai lu que sa superficie est de plus de 400m2. J avais l'impression qu'il était beaucoup plus petit. Peut être parce qu'il est très chargé en ornements. Surprenant, sympathique, et gratuit
