town, Meurthe-et-Moselle departement, Lorraine region, northeastern France. It lies between the left bank of the Moselle River and the Marne au Rhin Canal, 12 miles (19 km) west of Nancy. The former fortress town was rebuilt after World War II, during which whole sections were devastated by fire. Notable churches have survived, including the restored former cathedral of Saint-Etienne, dating from the 13th century, and the 13th-14th-century church of Saint-Genoult.
