A place filled with history

Pictogramme d'une vague.

Housed in a former mansion of a shipowner built in tuffeau, noble stone of the Loire country, the Hotel Duquesne** is a vestige of the time when the Erdre flowed under its windows. It was not until 1929 that the works to divert the river underground to the Canal Saint-Félix and the filling of its main bed gave birth to the street that became the « Cours des 50 Otages » after the war.
