Place de la Carriere, Nancy, France, 2011[open in full screen]  

 
  Previous Place Vaudémont, Nancy, France

Another square connected to the Place Stanislas, visible under the Arc the Triumph. This arch is a copy of Septimus Severus’ arch in Rome, it glorifies King Louis XV through its ornamentation celebrating him as victor and peacemaker.

  Vast square is envisioned by Duke Stanislas as an esplanade linking the old and the new Nancy. Two mansions face each other at the entry to the square: Hôtel de Craon (today’s court of appeal) and the Bourse de Commerce (today’s administrative tribunal.   We can easily say that Nancy is city of urban squares and it deserves special page with our impression about an area around four squares marked on our map bellow. By selecting a next square make a quick tour true them and then proceed to the whole big picture.

Next Place S. Epreve – P. Malval, Nancy, France
