History and urbanism
A naval shipyard since ancient times, this is a town that knows its stuff! The city was a major port before the Dukes of Brittany made it their principle residence in the 15th century. Its history is inseparable from that of the international trade that boomed from the 17th century, as well as its dark side – the slave trade. At the heart of the Revolution, through the Vendée Wars, western France’s major metropolis was later a leading light in industrialisation. To this day it plays a major part in the Nantes-Saint-Nazaire Port.
A stroll around Nantes is nothing less than enchanting. Leave the mediaeval surroundings of the Quartier du Bouffay for the fantasy world of Machines de l’Ile, located in the former naval shipyard and seemingly straight from Jules Verne’s imagination. L’île Feydeau, the Place Royale, the Quartier Graslin and of course the estuary itself will give your eyes a feast. Plenty to give you sweet dreams tonight !
The history of Nantes spans the centuries. Europe’s only museum to the abolition of slavery traces the history of the slave trade, which for centuries aided the growth in international trade and the influence of the Port of Nantes. The Château of the Dukes of Brittany, home to the city’s museum, will unveil the secrets of Europe’s green capital. It’s a packed programme for your family weekend or business tourism trip.
Whether it’s the Folle Journée or the famous carnival, the Printemps des Nefs, the Estuaire Biennale of Contemporary Art held between Nantes and Saint-Nazaire or the various film festivals, your stay in Nantes will be a celebration.
