Rue du Calvaire

Angle rue du Calvaire/Cours des 50 Otages
Nantes, 44000
Named after the former Filles du Calvaire congregation of Benedictine nuns who handed over their land to the city at the end of the 18th century, this street was almost entirely destroyed by bombardments during the Second World War. Today the street is better known for its shops than for its architectural interest.

However urgent archaeological excavations carried out here on a site where a new department store was to be built (this has since been cancelled) uncovered part of the city's medieval fortifications, which are so well preserved that you can still make out the remains of city entrance towers such as the Tour de l'Erdre or the Tour Haut le Pied.
