The Graffe Gate
Licensed under PD

The Graffe Gate is one of the oldest remaining parts of Nancys fortifications. It was erected in the 14th century, and its towers were used as prisons for many years. Its bell also formerly tolled the curfew.

The facade displays a distinctive Lorraine Cross, since the city was the former capital of the Duchy of Lorraine.
