It is the even worse than that: the City hall which in voluntarily shaved the second tower to build one ugly office building in the 70s.

She also made shaved the magnificent Hotel Des Postes (near the Place du Commerce ) to make it a public garden...

Please tell us something about the tower above. It looks special.

Amazing town. The only thing I regret (and this applies to most smaller and mid-sized Fench cities I've visited or seen) is that there are so few people in the street. It all looks a bit desolate. Have these towns ondergone a sharp decline in population in the 20th century? Or is it because the harbour and industry is further away from the city centre nowadays?

There are a lot of people in the commercial streets of the city, but I rather took photos of the living districts of the city center. It is true whom we are in winter (and in Nantes, in winter, it is cold, it is windy, and it is raining a lot, the Atlantic Ocean is only in 45Km)....People thus take refuge with shopping malls


About the Tour LU :

The Tour LU (Art-Nouveau style ) is vestiges of the factories of biscuits LU (the most famous brand of biscuits in France, as Cadburry in England) to create by Louis Levèvre-Utile (LU) in 1886 and activates until 1986.
In the 80s, the city hall decides unfortunately to shave the factory Est (to create an office building) and to preserve only the factory West, transformed in the 2000s into cultural place and Hammam.

At that time, LU tower were situated on the Quays of the Loire (filled in the 1930s to create roads, one called Nantes, western Venice, because of the numerous arms of rivers and bridges)


LU Factorys in the 20s




and 1952 :

In the entrance of Court Saint-Pierre, are set up 3 statutes:

Monument in homage to the soldiers of the World War I:



la Duchesse Anne de Bretagne





Arthur III, Connétable de France, Duc de Bretagne



And here are two Chapels, both placed between Court Saint-Pierre and the Jardin des plantes:

la Chapelle de l'Oratoire, Classified as "Historic Monument", constructed between 1651 and 1655, it is an appendix of the nearby Museum of the Fine arts (at present closed within the framework of a renovation + extension of 10 000m ² )






la Chapelle du Lycée Georges Clémenceau, Date 1892, as prestigious high school which she makes left, today she serves as classroom ( http://www.lycee-clemenceau-nantes.f...ochapelle.html )
