From the outside it doesn't look like much but it is well worth stepping inside as it is stunning. It's a very large cathedral with beautiful organ pipes and gold trimming. A little difficult to find - we found it by chance in the end...More

I don't really know where to begin? The front built 30 years ago? The 200 year old Back? The pretty cottages? The pointless tower? The art exhibitions in the crypt? or the modern stain glass window? Odd.

In facts not really worth the detour, but since Lille is a small city you will certainly pass by and it will not cost you much effort to have a look !

Build between the late 19th and early 21st century, it was supposed to be one of the grandest cathedrals in France. However, currently, it even lacks towers. Although not completed to the original design, it is a large cathedral, with minimal interior decorations. The front...More
