Nantes

From the Château des ducs de Bretagne to the Passage Pommeraye, from the Musée d’arts to the Galerie des machines, every street in Nantes reveals its historical, architectural and artistic wealth. The city surprises visitors with its creativity and ability to constantly reinvent and renew itself.

Discovering the former city of Brittany’s dukes means enjoying exceptional architectural heritage, discovering contemporary artwork in random streets, and strolling around “the only city in France where I feel like something worthwhile might happen to me.” (André Breton).

MUSÉE D’ARTS DE NANTES

Nantes’ fine art museum’s collection is one of the richest in France, ranging from ancient to contemporary art in every shape and creative form imaginable. Three temporary exhibitions: En chemin dans le grand patio, Bevis Martin & Charlie Youle, Planet Man in the forecourt outside the museum, and Mircéa Cantor’s Înainte In the Chapelle de l’Oratoire.
