Lonely Planet review
Nancy’s crowning glory is this neoclassical square, one of France’s grandest public spaces and a Unesco World Heritage Site. Designed by Emmanuel Héré in the 1750s, it was named after the enlightened, Polish-born Duke of Lorraine who commissioned it, and whose statue stands in the middle. Your gaze will be drawn to an opulent ensemble of pale-stone buildings, including the hôtel de ville and the Opéra National de Lorraine , as well as gilded wrought-iron gateways by Jean Lamour and rococo fountains by Guibal, including one of a trident-bearing Neptune.
