Nancy is famous around the world for its group of architectural masterpieces inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List:

Place Stanislas, Place de la Carrière and Place d’Alliance.

Entirely renovate, embellished and returned to pedestrians, the Place Stanislas is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. The works to beautify the square were completed in 2005, and an exceptional quality was achieved, particularly in the gorgeous pavers which are extremely close to the original. The gates have been gilded, the buildings and their decorative elements have been finely restored; this spectacular 18th century architectural gem square has been returned to its former glory. 

More than ever a place for conviviality and celebrations, the square has rediscovered, two and a half centuries after its inauguration, all its former charm. Place d’Alliance, the small but stunning neighbour and Place de la Carrière which creates the prospect to the Palias du Gouvernment (Government Palace), are both also inscribed on the UNESCO list.

The large perimeter, taking in these three monuments as well as the Arc de Triomphe, dedicated to Louis XV, form one of the most exquisite examples of 18th century European architecture.
