Events

Nantes Saint-Nazaire Estuary Trail On the 60kms of the Loire estuary, this open-air museum will take you on a voyage of discovery of this fascinating land and the rich environmental heritage it holds. In 2012, 8 new perennial installations will join the ranks along this arts trail and bring the total to 29 the number of artworks on show on the whole of its length.

Food

Contrary to many other great French cities, Nantes cuisine is not typically characterized through emblematic recipes. Our cuisine is characterized by a singular spirit linked to its history, its geographical location and the figures that had an impact on it. This spirit is the one of the opening to the world, of multiculturalism, of curiosity, of travelling… This is without a doubt because Nantes is at a crossroads between the sea and the land, between the sweet and the savoury, the world of plants and the world of animals, between Britanny, Vendée and the Loire river. And also because Nantes, with its port tradition, has been enriched by the flavours of the world that the explorers and the navigators have brought back over the centuries.
