Nancy is a bit off the beaten tourist path in France, but certainly a fascinating side-trip: it has a lovely old city, two stellar early Baroque churches, and most noteworthy a High Enlightenment new city with the spectacular Stanislas Square and many fine Art Nouveau aka École de Nancy buildings from the turn of the 20th Century.
The motto of the city is “s Non inultus premor” meaning “I am not touched with impunity”. The city is known for its world heritage buildings at Palace Stanislas. The marvelous spot has a whole different world in it. It is renowned for its lavish style of architecture; it has just set an example about how lustrous a place can be. It is quite famous for its 18th century Baroque style.
