Geocache Description:


Apportez votre stylo / Bring your pen

English version below


Cette cache se situe non loin de la rue d’Orléans, prévue, dès l’origine, comme une artère commerçante de la ville.

Créé de 1825 à 1827, la rue d’Orléans est conçue comme un lien entre la vieille ville, autrefois ceinte de remparts (l’actuel quartier du Bouffay), et les quartiers en développement sur l’autre rive de l’Erdre, notamment le nouveau quartier Graslin et le Quai de la Fosse.

La rue d’Orléans prolonge l’axe de la rue de la Barillerie (du nom des tonneliers qui l’occupaient) et du pont d’Orléans qui les reliait pour former une artère rectiligne de 400 mètres de long, de la place Royale à la place du Pilori. Elle sera la première rue électrifiée de la ville dès 1890.

Le pont d’Orléans disparaîtra dans les années trente, lors du comblement de l’Erdre en centre-ville.

Fortement touchée lors des bombardements alliés de septembre 1943, la place royale et la rue d’Orléans sont reconstruites à l’identique.

Fidèle à sa destination, la rue d’Orléans, demeure, encore de nos jours, une des grandes rues commerçantes du centre-ville.


This cache is hidden not far from rue d’Orléans (Orleans Street), which was planned, since its origin, as a shopping street in the city
Established from 1825 to 1827, rue d’Orléans is conceived as a link between the old town, once surrounded by ramparts (the present district of Bouffay), and the developing districts on the other side of the river Erdre, including the new Graslin neighborhood and Quai de la Fosse (Pit Quay along the river Loire).

Rue d’Orléans extends the axis of Barillerie Street (named after the coopers who occupied it) and the pont d’Orléans (Orleans Bridge) which connected them to form a straight artery 400 meters long, from Place Royale (Royal Square) to Place du Pilori (Pillory Square). The pont d’Orléans disappeared in the thirties, during the filling of the river Erdre.
Strongly affected during the allied bombings of September 1943, the Place Royale and the rue d’Orléans were reconstructed identically.
True to its destination, rue d’Orléans, remains, still today, one of the main shopping streets of the city center.
