A journey to Nantes!
This métropole is one of the major cultural, artistic and creative poles in France, but you’re yet to see it at its best!
Le Voyage à Nantes (A journey to Nantes) is a culturally rich, coherent, sensitive and poetic journey to be discovered year round. The city is revealed in a dialogue between art and landscape, moving from an artwork of today to a remarkable element of the local heritage and then on to a contemporary piece of architecture. Overall, there are about 30 stops from East to West, joining to create a sensitive and poetic tour: Le voyage à Nantes has all the multiplicity and uniqueness of a scattered monument.
