Located in top of Gran Rue, was part of Nancy's old city defences. The gate is from 14th century . Is well maintained both external as internal.

It's big. You get the best impression when you walk through it... From the outside it already seems to be huge. If you want to , you may visit the inside but only with a fee. In any case it's worth comming here.

The cityscape of Nacy is partly determined by this beautiful medieval building. It has been restored a few years ago and you are deeply in the city walls and the prison that was once there.

It is another gem to Nancy's history. The gate has a typical medieval-styled architecture, and it is located near the historic centre, the building itself and the building surrounding it are proof of Nancy's rich history. One can walk through the gate when the gate...More

Quite a gem in a corner of the city. Beautifully restored building, nothing much to for or see apart from the architecture. But worth a visit.
