Nancy – A Hub of Medieval Heritage of the Country

Related image

As I traveled to the northeast of France, a city that I came across and would recommend to fellow travelers is Nancy. It is an uncommon name but it lies by the riverfront in the Grand East of the country. As with most of the inner and smaller cities of the country, I found this region to be rich with its nouveau art landmarks as well as late Baroque architecture.


If you come to Nancy I would recommend that you find a place to stay by the central square. This is one of the heritage sites that you find here and this particular place acts as a focal point of the city. Since I and my friends put up at a place close to the grand square, we simply walked over to this place. This majestic site has wrought iron gates that are gilded and with rococo fountains inside the lawns. The site has several churches and ornate palaces that showcase the medieval history of the place.

Palais Ducal

As you come by the square, visit this grand old palace which was home for the Lorraine dukes. It is now known as Musée Lorrain. It is a dedicated museum where you can learn about the region’s culture, history, and regional art.

St.-Epvre and Musée Des Beaux-Arts

These are basilicas of the neo-Gothic era that are nearby. We combined all these historic landmarks in a single day tour and you can do that as well. In both these places, you will find exquisite pieces and specimens of glassware that are of the art nouveau style and date back to the 14th and 20th century. There are paintings of these periods as well.

Musée De l’École De Nancy

Once I started to visit all the historic and museum sites that this city has, it did seem that there is much to explore and know about. This is another unique museum that has exhibits of olden day furniture as well as Objets D’art, all housed in a villa which is surrounded by garden spaces.
