History of Nancy

Nancy’s architectural and historic heritage is exceptional and can be subdivided into three periods : Medieval Age, the 18th century and the beginning of the 21st century.  

The old town dates back to the Middle Ages. The Craffe Gate was the main entrance to the old town's northern aspect. It is a symbol of the town's medieval past, the gate leans on the deep rooted architecture which is seen much across its neighbouring region of Alsace and Lorraine. It is the entrance to another world.

There are a lot of religious buildings to visit across Nancy, such as the Baroque Cathedral, built during the 18th century. There is also the beautiful neo-gothic Basilica Saint Epvre, as well as the roman catholic Sacred Heart Basilica inspired by the Sacree-Cœur in Paris.
