reaches back to the Roman empire and beyond. You will be charmed by the
coherence of the city’s architecture and will enjoy beautiful places,
such as the hill of Sainte Croix with its pre-Christian ruins, the
medieval arches of the place St Louis, the Saint Etienne cathedral, one
of the finest gothic churches in France and beautiful parks and planted
squares in the heart of the city and on the shore of the river Moselle.
