Les Machines de l'Île Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Here in the heart of the former boiler-making workshops of the Chantiers de la Loire shipyards, you will come across a world straight out of the imagination of Jules Verne: gigantic machines such as the giant Heron Tree and the Marine Worlds Carrousel are to be found all over the site. Climb up onto the elephant for a ride around part of the isle! Two Titan cranes mark the ends of a promenade that stretches along the Loire and up to the Hangar à Bananes. Between them you will see the Anneaux de Buren (the Buren Rings, which light up at night). All along the riverbank there are art galleries, restaurants and trendy bars.
