Lille, the capital of the department of northern France and pearl of the Flemish region, is a town full of historical, religious and artistic attractions. Colourful and charming, it is rich in history and will surely take your breath away. Among the must-see places in Lille is the old town.

In the Vieux Lille you can stroll along picturesque cobbled streets, which wind through the characteristic Flemish houses, to discover the most beautiful monuments of the city. The heart of the old city is represented by Place du Général de Gaulle.

The square, which has a large column in the centre in memory of the 1792 siege of the city, overlooks the beautiful old Stock Exchange building.
