300 years ago Lille was a rich and important city in Flandres (Belgium). Now, Lille is the capital of Nord-Pas-de-Calais, the most northern province in France.

The influence of those two countries can be found on every corner of this charming city. Beautiful Flemish and French architecture, local Flemish cooking, great Belgian beers ... it's an exceptional city that you just have to visit one day.

    Nice tips from your visit to Lille in 2004. I went to Lille last October for the first time and liked it very much.

    We're spending two days in Lille this weekend. It looks like a lovely city with plenty to see. I like the sound of the Flemish food in La Vieille.

    Thanks for your comment on my Lille page. Bij ons tripje twee weken geleden zijn we thuis vertrokken in de regen. Gaandeweg werd het beter en beter en op één plensbui na net na onze lunch op een leuk terras is het de hele dag zonnig en warm geweest.

    Leuke Lille page (of rijsel zoals ze hier zeggen, Jaja veel Vlaamser kan een Franse stad haast niet zijn. Een toffe stad om te bezoeken en om te gaan winkelen.

    I went earlier this year to the Rubens exhibition. Lille is always great visiting. Nice shopping too.
