  • The Eglise Sainte Croix, is a beautiful church located in the historic centre of the city of Nantes. It is one of the churches that we visited on our trip to this beautiful French city. It was built in the 17TH century in classic style and later modified in the 19th century. Its exterior stands out the impressive Bell Tower with Golden details and with the figure of Angels with trumpet in hand. Inside is a little dark, but it should be noted the beauty of his Altar, his body, his pulpit and its stained glass windows. The parish register carries, February 8, 1828, the transcript of the birth certificate and baptism of Julio Verne. A church that is worth visiting and entry is free.

  • If it is on your route you would pop in for a looksee - I can never walk by these places but usually only spend about 10-15 minutes. . . . and if I can I always light a candle !  more »
  • Beautiful church with a spectacular tower with figures of angels playing, the interior in contrast is a little dark, beautiful stained glass windows.

  • This place is excellent. Not widely known. Read a book, see the flowers or just drink something. Nowadays a bit more frequented by the nearby new aquarium.
  • Lovely place
  • Super carillon !
  • I've never seen stained glass of this style. It's worth the detour.
