In the 2nd half of the 18th century, Héré united the medieval and the renaissance sections of Nancy for the duke of Lorraine, former king Stanislas. Héré got his own arch and his statue is a bit hidden on the right side, coming from the...More

This is a lovely square, with beautiful black and gold gates, two large fountains and beautiful buildings: the opera house, museum, hotel de ville, tourist office, several cafes and a hotel. Definately worth a visit. Lovely when lit up after dark.

Impressive piece of architecture, part of the complex of buildings surrounding Place Stanislas. Locals are proud for a good reason!

As well as whole Stanislas square this is one of the most beautiful and best maintained buildings in Nancy. Its picture remains in a memory and comes back immediately when you hear "Nancy".

I have walked thru this monument on several occasions as a child, it was nice to see that it has remained in very good condition. Nice street with interesting shops and cafe's as you approach from the PS side.

This was a nice entrance to Place Stanislas. We parked around Place de la Carriere and walked to the square walking under the arch. It is very nice but the main attraction is Place Stanislas.

"Here" was the architect Stanislas employed to realize his dream, and he got his very own arch - deserved, since he did Stanislas proud. You walk under it out of the Place to go to the Carriere.
