Three weeks ago I was in Morocco. Unfortunately I didn’t go to Jardin Majorelle, but I saw beautiful pictures from the garden and regrettet I didn’t go by my own. At that time I knew I was going to Nancy, but I didn’t know there were a connection between Jardin Majorelle and Nancy.
Yesterday, while the men went by train to Metz, I decided to do some Nancy-sightseeing on my own. I remembered that our host here had told me to take a walk to “a house with Art Nouveau style”. I found the house, Villa Majorelle, marked it on my iPhone-map, and started to walk.
It was only 2,5 km. but for me, with my small disabilities, it was longer than I am used to walk, so I was kind of disappointed when I found the house and it was closed! I was not the only tourist who wanted to see the house yesterday, but I was the only one who took pictures through a hole in the closed gate!
I was also the only one who climbed up on a, to be honest, I am not sure what it was, but it was a “plastic-thing” and I was a little bit afraid it wouldn’t hold me (as I didn’t know what it was…). Well, at least I got a better shot of the entrance than the others!
The two last photoes was taken from the other side of the street.
Villa Majorelle was built in 1901-1902 and was the first Art-Nouveau building in Nancy. For more information about the building read here.
