"LE PHARE DE CALAIS." Lille Things to Do Tip by funkymama

Lille Things to Do: 179 reviews and 361 photos


In spite of being 51 metres high, the Calais light house escaped by miracle from the destructions of the last war. For those not daunted by the 271 steps, the reward is a magnificent view. The whole Calais region will be spread out before them. Looking over the straits, the white cliffs of Dover can be seen on a clear day. Looking west, the horizon is marked by the rounded summits of hills in the Boulogne region.

62100 CALAIS.
