Set in the historic heart of Nantes, the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany is the region’s most important historic building, with the Cathedral St Pierre.
The inner courtyard reveals an elegant 15th century ducal residence of tufa stone, in a flamboyant-gothic architecture style bearing the first marks of Renaissance inspiration and other buildings dating back from the 16th and the 18th centuries.
We hope you enjoyed a 60 minutes tour of the Castle’s museum with English speaking guides, a cocktail followed by a gourmet dinner while listening a string quartet playing classical music during the evening.
We were happy to receive you in the Castle for the gala dinner of the FEBS 2015 Conference which together with all the other evening events was free of charge.
Note: Any special dietary requirement for both the lunches and the gala dinner should be indicated by 11th May.
