The last visit during our Erasmus project in France that I would like to write about is a city called Nantes. Nantes is the capital city of Pays de la Loire. I don’t have many photos (damn you, Denisa) so this is going to be quite short.
First of all, we visited a memorial of slavery. Nantes used to be the main city of ships with slaves and this memorial reminds us what a horrible time it was.
These little things on the ground are the names of all the slavery ships.
Another thing that is Nantes known for is an old shopping centre called Pommeraye. And this. Place. Is. Magnifique.
Next stop was la Place Royal with its beautiful fontane.
Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne is also very lovely.
The last thing I would love to show you is something really cool! Especially fans of steampunk would really appreciate it. I didn’t take a photo of it so this one is from the internet.
Okay, so this massive machine actually walks, spreads water and makes sounds. And people can ride in it. I have never ever seen something like this in my whole life. I was so so amazed by this and I cannot even decide if it creepes me out or really fascinates me.
And here are some more photos:
I feel very sorry looking back now that I didn’t use the camera more. Nantes is really beautiful and of all the places we’ve been to, this city really met my french expectations. Lots of cafes, small boutiques, narrow streets.. Loved it.
