Château de Lunéville
From 1702 to 1729, Lunéville was the favoured place of residence of Léopold, Duke of Lorraine. A great admirer of the Sun King, he commissioned Germain Boffrand to build a modest "replica" of Versailles in Lunéville. Unfortunately, a part of Lunéville's artistic history went up in smoke as a result of the fire which ravaged the south wing of the castle in 2003, destroying both the chapel and the museum. Restoration work is likely to be completed by 2016.
Address :place de la 2ème-Div.-de-Cavalerie, 54300 Lunéville
