Located on the eastern edge of Nancy, this municipality joined the club of Tour de France stage towns in 2012 on the day of the race’s first finish at La Planche des Belles Filles, and two years later it hosted the start of a stage won in Gérardmer by Blel Kadri. It’s also home to the Marcel-Picot stadium, the home of AS Nancy-Lorraine. Michel Platini made his professional debut here. After a dazzling playing career, he also organised his testimonial game here in the spring of 1988. That match brought together three of the best football players of all time: “Platoche” and Maradona on the pitch, with Pelé watching in the stands.
