The Passage Pommeraye

The team of HOTEL THE ORIGINALS NANTES WEST SAINT-HERBLAIN accompany you in your discovery of Nantes and the surroundings. And to come to Nantes without crossing the splendid shopping arcade of Passage Pommeraye would be unforgivable !

Nantes is one of the very few cities in Europe with a covered walk of such architectural value. Exclusively pedestrian, this passage is a splendor of architecture, but also a good address of shopping for your stay in Nantes.

Shopping Glamor

Created in 1843, it remains a trendy place in the heart of the city of the Dukes. This covered passage makes the link between the upper city, on the side of the street Santeuil and the lower city, on the side of the street of the Fosse.

The boutiques of the Passage Pommeray are organized on three levels, served by a monumental staircase. Its exuberant decoration is a mixture of neoclassicism and Louis-Philippe eclecticism. But open your eyes! Silent observers, in the form of animals, observe your wanderings: the stairs are supported by dragons and the steps are decorated with snails.

The passage Pommeray regularly hosts new major brands, including AM-PM, Nespresso, Sostrene Grene, Bialetti, Le Monde du Macaron, Le Creuset and Batt and Blou.

By the way, where does his name come from?

The Passage Pommeraye owes its name to a young notary, Louis Pommeraye who dreamed of transforming this unsanitary and ill-famed street of the time. Built from 1840 to 1843, it quickly became a fashionable place to shop or just walk around. He was able to survive all the crises and escape the bombardments of 1943. At the time of the reconquest of the city by pedestrians, it is experiencing a new dynamism and today more than ever attracts the most famous signs that wish to be part of the good addresses of the center of Nantes.

The covered passages in Europe

There are only about thirty remarkable passages of this type in Europe. A project to classify these passages in the Unesco heritage is also under discussion. More concretely, a twinning with the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert in Brussels was born in 2016 to promote the covered passages.
