History

Designed and planned in 1700 by architects Giovanni Betto, Jules Hardouin-Mansart and Germain Boffrand.

Construction began in 1703 and took place during the reign of le duc Léopold, King Stanislas.

By around 1760, both the interior and exterior were largely complete.

It was difficult to get a good overall shot of the cathedral because of the buildings immediately in front of it.

Summary

Although I have mainly seen Gothic cathedrals, the Nancy Cathedral, which I visited this time, is said to be Baroque and is very simple, both on the exterior and interior.

However, its simplicity also seemed to enhance the cathedral, giving it a unique atmosphere not found in other cathedrals.

The opulent cathedrals have their charms, but the cathedrals where people can pray in silence are also very appropriate for the city of Nancy.

Thank you again for reading to the end of this issue.
