Nantes... something like a Capital

Nantes is in west of France, is around 300,000 inhabitants in the city proper, and many more in urban and metropolitan area...

here some shots from yesterday...

Cool

Brings back memories

I spent a happy year there at Uni in the 1990s (well in St Nazaire but stayed in Nantes a lot)...also went to Rennes a few times including a trip to see Nirvana play the Salle Omnisports.

Wonderful Nantes, so many good souvenirs from there. I visited a lot in 94 an 95. But never back again
A pity you don´t have pics from the Castle.
But Nantes itself is a really nice city with a very nice area around and beautiful landscapes.
Thanks for the pics Steph, j´ai bien aimé. Merci beacoup (j'ai vu que tu aimes bien la Tour de Bretagne )

...called le "Liberté" which means Liberty

@Obidos, yes it's not easy to take good shots of the castle from exterior of the wall... and yes i like the tour de bretagne, alone real skyscraper (>100m) 400km round from here, but normally not for a long time... hehe it is still France

Awesome shots. I love these typical French buildings.

Another thing I love are the French lampposts. I think you can find the same ones in pretty much every French city. Germany sadly uses cheap, nasty looking ones.

What's going on in this shot btw? Some structural problems?

it's only true in the city center for the lampspots, in peripheric districts we already have lamp that come from the late 80's made of galvanized steel...

and, yes on the second pic you pointed, the buildings have been built on an old river, the foundation are on sand, and are not enough strong, it seems that this kind of problem is the signature of Nantes... it's a Nantais who said this, not me
