Le Lieu Unique reviews
Very interesting and modern art center, I went with my classmates and professor. I was amazed by the idea behind each art piece, made me think a lot about human beings. Merci pour la visit.
Quirky art and performance space in a disused biscuit factory a short walk from train station and chateau. Another example of Nantes creativity and imagination.
