Metz is a city situated in the region of Lorraine which, like its neighboring region Alsace, belonged throughout history to both Germany or France, at different times. This is apparent in its cuisine and in the architecture of some of the monuments. The most important and impressive is the Gothic Cathedral of Saint Etienne, known as the "Lantern of God" with its 6,500 square meters of glass (the largest collection in Europe). The best time to visit is at sunset preferably without too many people, so that you can enjoy the magic of the sunset light.
If you walk in the city center of Metz, in the Lorraine region, you will see the birthplace of General Muad'huy on rue de la Tete d'Or, number 7-9, it's signposted. He was born here in 1857 and is known for his military career. During the First World War, he was the commander of the 10th Army, and played a major role in the Battle of the Marne. General Maud'huy then received the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor. It is now the Invalides in Paris.
