The most important item in the Cordelier's church is the gisant of Rene II. He had the church built between 1480-87 to celebrate the delivery of Nancy in 1477. he died in 1509. Its base is decorated with pleurants and done by Gauvain. Not far off is the altar which is backed by a retable of the Trinity done in polychrome. The east wall of the church is covered by a fine set of choir stalls taken from a nearby church in 1691.
