About France


The History Museum of Nantes, located in the Castle, invites you to learn more about the history of this amazing town. Nearby the Castle, the medieval "Bouffay" district allows the visitors to admire picturesque timber-framed, half-timbered and corbelled houses.

Take time to visit the beautiful gothic cathedral which houses the grave of Anne of Brittany’s parents. Reach the "Graslin" square to have a break in "La Cigale", a lovely brasserie from 1900. If you’re found of shopping, stroll in the "Crébillon" street which leads to the magnificent neo-classic "Passage Pommeraye".

The art lovers should visit the Fine Arts Museum, one of the richest in France.

At lunch time, a host of local restaurants awaits you in the nearby Bouffay district. Walk into this medieval area and have a look at the belfry crowned with angels of the Sainte-Croix Church.

End your day by a dinner at La Cigale, a classified monument which dates back to the 1900’s and located just opposite the Opera Graslin. For over a century, no famous artist has ever missed a detour to this brasserie when he is in town.
