Visits, monuments... in Lille Metropolis

LILLE and its surrounding metropolis

Lille and its surrounding metropolis are a veritable melting-pot. Whether you are a lover of country walks, a window-shopping addict, an admirer of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de la Treille or a die-hard sports fan, Lille Metropolis has something to offer. During the day, cobbled streets and ‘’grands’ places’’ house every different kind of museum, from traditional to modern, industrial or scientific. At night, the entire metropolis is lit up: the shows on offer – ballets, operas, theatre plays, comedy, variety shows – play to packed houses.

Hospice Comtesse Museum - Lille
A former hospital founded in 1237, this rare example of a building constructed in Lille between the 15th and the 18th Centuries combines the intimate setting of a Flemish-style house with the monumental scale, laden with memories and emotions, of the ward for the sick.
