A land of memories opens its door to the future

Béthune and Arras are towns that have been influenced by the Flemish and, to a certain extent, the Spanish people. They represent the limits of an extensive tract of land lying between the Artois plains, the mining area and the farming villages. They bear the marks, in the same way as Lens and Liévin, of the First World War, immortalized in the many white crosses and the landscape scarred by memories.

The Artois hills are dominated by beautiful churches and a particular type of architecture in brick and stone. The slag heaps have shaped the landscape, becoming areas for walking and outdoor pursuits. And Lens is the site of the Louvre Lens since 2012 !

Arras: City of Art and Light…

When visiting the Boves – Xth century quarries – it becomes clear that Arras hides fabulous treasures… First of all, the squares with 155 Flemish baroque style façades form a splendid and unique setting in Europe.
The town hall and the belfry, which is listed as UNESCO World Heritage site, are another evidence of the city’s magnificence.

The Saint-Vaast abbey, outstanding masterpiece from the XVIIIth-century monastic architecture, is home to the Museum of Fine Arts and its famous medieval collections.

Not far from there, the visit continues with the Theater and its magnificent Italian-style auditorium, the XVIIIth-century Hôtel de Guînes and the Musée du Compagnonnage…

Built in the XVIIth century by Vauban, the Citadel hosts the Main Square festival and is a great example of the city’s revival. For Arras is an animated place: culinary discoveries, a huge market on Saturday mornings, shopping, no less than 1500 terrace seats and so many events and festivals. These are all the more reasons to discover or rediscover Artois’ capital.
