Why in Nantes ?
Nowadays, the Loire and the Erdre still cross the city even if some parts were filled to facilitate car traffics. Nantes, commercial port, has built many merchant, pleasure and war ships during the past. Among these, three destroyers similar to the “Maillé-Brézé” were built in Nantes:
* Le Cassard
* Le Tartu
* Le Guepratte
More than 2,300 buildings were designed and built by the shipyard of the city. What could be more natural than seeing the Maillé-Brézé embodying and reminding the rich history of shipyards in Nantes ?
