Place S. Epreve – P. Malval, Nancy, France, 2011[open in full screen]  

 
  Previous Place de la Carriere, Nancy, France

Square is located in the middle of “ville vieille” [old town], Nancy’s historic centre. It was the main trading centre in the middle-ages where a main city market used to be.

  Saint-Epreve basilica, which towers above the square was only built at the end of the 19th century, but it remains a beautiful masterpiece of Gothic architecture. It is praised by Viollet-le-Duc [famous French architect who renovated France’s most celebrated cathedrals].   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.
