The cityscape of Nacy is partly determined by this beautiful medieval building. It has been restored a few years ago and you are deeply in the city walls and the prison that was once there.

It is another gem to Nancy's history. The gate has a typical medieval-styled architecture, and it is located near the historic centre, the building itself and the building surrounding it are proof of Nancy's rich history. One can walk through the gate when the gate...More

Quite a gem in a corner of the city. Beautifully restored building, nothing much to for or see apart from the architecture. But worth a visit.
