Situated at the crossroads of Europe, Metz is like an open history book. From the Gallo-Roman era to the present day, the centuries have left traces of their heritage, enriched by the Jaumont stone: Metz is a mosaic of styles, materials and colours. Its living heritage continues into the avant-garde with a masterpiece of town planning: the Centre Pompidou-Metz, a daring space for discovering modern and contemporary art in all its forms.
