Flanked by the imposing forms of the Arsenal cultural centre and the Palais de Justice, these 9,200m2 formal gardens were originally created in 1916. Look out for the sculptures around the gardens, particularly of Marshall Michel Ney, who fought in the Napoleonic wars and was much beloved by the Emperor Napoleon. Also adjacent to the gardens is the Église St-Pierre-aux-Nonains, as well as the 13th century Chapelle des Templiers (Chapel of the Knights Templar), which is unique in the region.
St Stephen’s Cathedral
This cathedral, built between 1220 and 1522, is famous for its copious stained glass windows, ranging in age from the 13th to the 20th century and forming the longest stretch of stained glass in the world. Also notable are the Gothic windows on the main wall of the north transept, as well as the stylistically-contrasting Renaissance-style windows on the south transept wall.
