The yellow "Titan" crane, Nantes

It’s big, 43 meters, weighs 400 tons and, above all, it’s yellow. This Titan crane on the Ile de Nantes bears witness to the region’s commercial and industrial past. Built in 1954 and used on the site of the shipyards, this machine is now a listed historic monument. The pride of the local population, it has become a tourist attraction, just like its little sister, dressed in grey, located on another quay in the port of Nantes. A bookshop-restaurant awaits you at its feet.
