  • The Church of the Holy Cross at Nantes was built in 1685 second dictates of the Jesuit order, and was the old chapel of the castle of Bouffay which stood near the Church. The façade and the portico are original, while the choir and the Bell Tower dates back to the mid-1800s. The top Bell metal is perhaps the peculiarity of the Church. In fact the top was part of the old Castle Tower, which was later called into the top of the Church of Santa Croce. The Interior is rather dark but equally charming.

  • Creates a certain expectation to be seen outside because your dome really draws attention. However, your interior is a little shabby and very austere, which disappoints visitors

  • Lovely place
  • Super carillon !
  • This place is superb. Little known, I often ask me. Read a book, look at the flowers, or just a drink. The new aquarium attracts the world but the back and forth of the troubled tourists the tranquility of the place. Too bad...
