Nantes is part of Loire Atlantique. Even though the Loire Atlantique region was officially removed from Bretagne after WWII, Nantes' Breton heritage and contribution to Brittany's culture and history cannot be denied.
The Machines de l’Ile is an amazing French artistic project. It is a blend of the invented worlds of Jules Verne, the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci, and the industrial history of Nantes, on the exceptional site of the former shipyards. www.lesmachines-nantes.fr/english/
