Urban planning of the 18th and 19th centuries

The entire industrial and financial success of Nantes has shaped this stylish part of the town. Even though it felt the effects of the bombing raids in the last world war, it remains one of the finest examples of 18th and 19th century urban planning. Named Graslin after its developer, it was designed by the architects Ceineray and Crucy.
Coming off the shopping streets into the semi-pedestrian area you will find an array of pleasant terrace tables, chic boutiques, and Nantes heritage monuments.
