Les Machines de l’ile is a unique artistic, touristic and cultural project based in Nantes, France. You might have heard of Nantes because of the HELLFEST festival, a yearly rock, metal and punk event!
Finally I was able to visit the astounding Machines, and what an incredible craftsmanship. The Machine Gallery exhibits the background stories of the models with a hands on approach, an automated 10 meters high Great Elephant made from 45 tons of wood and steel takes up to 49 passengers for a 45 minutes walk around the site, an enormous Marine Worlds Carousel features 35 moving underwater creatures on three levels… Creativity as its best!
