Lots to see in this small church with a stunningly beautiful rose window. Quite a lot of medieval pieces on display.

The palace of the Dukes of Lorraine is under renovation, until further notice. The church and the funeral chapel remain open during the works. 500 years of history in the oldest church of Nancy. Free admission.

We gained access to the church during a visit to the Ducal Palace and the interior is very impressive. The highlights are the intriguing stonework, the dome and the chapel itself - the décor of which is truly amazing.

We visited this plain looking church as part of our entrance fee to the Lorrain Museum located next door. Initially the exhibits focus on timber and everyday life which are housed in the surrounding corridors of the church itself. Once into the little chuch, do...More

Part of the museum pass -worth seeing - as I mentioned in the Musee Lorraine review - the chapel is great! Lots of history!

The church is obviously not used any more in their original way. The setup is quite puristic and quite different to the cathedrales of Reims, Paris or Toule.
