Top 5 must-see sites in Nantes
1. The Plant Garden. The jardin des Plantes located opposite Nantes station is a must for tourists passing through the city of the Dukes, but also for all Nantes residents. Many people come here for their Sunday stroll. In the shade of a tree or simply by walking along the paths in search of the many plant sculptures in the city. We never get tired of strolling around this magical place that will please both young and old children.
2. The Island Machines. If there is one place in Nantes where all the artistic energy is concentrated, it is the island of Nantes. Like the island of the city of Paris, the island of Nantes cuts the Loire in the city centre and shelters some sights not to be missed. From giant spiders to gigantic elephants to robots, the island's Machines may impress you with their complexity. Born from François Delarozière's imagination, these machineries, with their appearance halfway between Jules Verne's illustrations and steam-punk science fiction, are still as impressive and surprising as ever.
3. The Pommeraye passage. The Pommeraye passage is a high place in the city of Nantes. This shopping mall, which is still in operation, has its own distinctive architectural style between the neoclassical and Haussmann styles typical of what is found in Paris. You can stroll around, shop or simply enjoy the engravings and other sculptures that adorn this magnificent gallery.
4. The castle of the Dukes of Brittany. A visit to Nantes inevitably passes through the castle of the Dukes of Brittany. And how can you miss it with its towers, its great ramparts and its people gathered or strolling at its feet? So cross the bridge and set off on a journey back in time to the great era of the kings of France and the Franco-English wars. The castle museum traces the history of Nantes, its strategic place and the kings who lived there. Before leaving, enjoy the panorama offered by the castle at the level of the ramparts, a breathtaking view of the Loire is then offered to you.
5. The cathedral of Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul. Another majestic place in Nantes is the cathedral of Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul with its frescos and magnificent stained glass windows. Once again located in the heart of the city, its construction was only completed in the 19th century, making it one of the youngest cathedrals in France. A curiosity to be discovered without fail during your stay in Nantes.
