Toul

Bounded by the Moselle River and the Canal de la Marne au Rhine, Toul is a gorgeous town layered in historic architecture. Formidable white-stone ramparts edged with moss stand as the fortified façade that has enclosed the city since 1699. St-Étienne Cathedral- whilst not in its hey-day glory, is still eerily breath-taking. Its’ exterior, framed by two high towers, houses one of the largest cloisters in France flanked by three galleries and numerous gargoyles perched. Also, head down to Église St-Gengoult to wander around its cloisters dating from the 16th century and see its flamboyant Renaissance architecture replete with star vaultings culminating in ornate keystones.
