This haven of peace has inspired more than one artist, from filmmaker Jacques Demy to cartoonist Tardi.

The Passage Pommeraye is a very old shopping mall in central Nantes named after its property developer, Louis Pommeraye. Construction started at the end of 1840 and was completed on 4 July 1843. The Passage Pommeraye is a passage between two streets, the rue Santeuil and rue de la Fosse, with one 9.40 m higher than the other. It has a very elaborate design and includes renaissance style sculptures, with a beautiful old long wooden staircase running down the middle and shops over three levels. The Passage Pommeraye has been classified as a historic monument since 1976.

A second gallery built perpendicular to the original one was added in 2016 where you will find shops like Hermès, Durance, AMPM.

OPENING TIMES : From Monday to Saturday 8am to 8pm.
