Travel : Nancy




Saturday, March 12, 2016


Nancy is famous around the world for its group of architectural masterpieces inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List :Place Stanislas, that is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world.Place de la Carrière and Place d’Alliance.
the city is so calm and convivial both historical grandeur and people passing by or hanging around on the plaza.

 the  old and new towns are connected today, but there's still a distinctly different mood between the two. 
the city is a little bit cold but i've spent 2 great weeks there !!
I loved the concept of "Emmaus"  and the water tower Saint charles converted into appartements !







The Emmaus movement began in France in 1949 when the first communities were set up. In the middle of a housing crisis, the first companions built accommodation to re-house numerous families. When the authorities failed to take action, Abbé Pierre made an appeal on 1 February 1954, which had a substantial impact in France and beyond.
From 1954 onwards, Abbé Pierre travelled the world, became involved in the global fight against poverty and told others of his experiences with Emmaus. Emmaus organisations were formed in several countries.
When he almost died in a shipwreck off the coast of Uruguay in 1963, Abbé Pierre realised how urgent it was to organise the movement. The Emmaus organisations from around the globe met for the first time in 1969 in Berne, Switzerland and Emmaus International was then set up in 1971.
