Nancy Cathedral was built at the beginning of the 18th century by architects Jules Hardouin-Mansart and Germain Boffrand. Several paintings by local artists from the 17th and 18th century are exhibited.

The great organ of the cathedral of Nancy has been built from 1756 by Nicolas Dupont. One century later (1861), Aristide Cavaillé-Coll signed here its biggest work in France outside of Paris.

Notre-Dame-de-l'Annonciation Cathedral of Nancy or in simple English Nancy Cathedral. It is about 300 years old. Location is very convenient, very close to Place Stanislas. We visited on a Monday. It was quite and peaceful. We spent some time enjoying the ambiance and browsing the beauty of it's architecture, paintings and the details. It was a very pleasing experience.

This cathedral is dedicated to King Sigebert III and the Virgin Mary; Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-l'Annonciation et Saint-Sigebert. This is baroque style architecture at its glorious representation! King Sigebert III was laid to rest here and became a pilgrimage for both religious and secular populus. It's absolutely stunning inside especially the domes on the transept and the main Apse. The Great organ gallery is a classified French historic monument. Originally built by Nicolas Dupont and one of his largest and most spectacular. One of the marvels of this cathedral worth exploring. A slow and meticulous exploring of this beautiful cathedral is required to really appreciate the magnitude and splendour of this very Baroque place of worship. Suitable for all ages and backgrounds and it's wheelchair friendly.

Big and magnificent Baroque style cathedral in Nancy. They broke ground in the 18th century and finished building it in the century. It is a national monument and the seat of the Bishop of Nancy and Toul. Sculptors and structure are very detailed. Location is excellent as it is in the center, right in front of several restaurants.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
