Nestled on the left bank of the Thérain river, Beauvais, the capital of the Oise department in Picardy is a historically prominent city in France. Sometimes referred to as the “City of Tapestry Making,” Beauvais has a long and an interesting tryst with the textile industry. Beauvais is also known as the city that bore a lot of brunt during the Second World War, leading to its partial destruction. Like a phoenix, it has risen from the ashes and now has earned itself the tag of being one of the most popular tourist destinations in France.
Beauvais owes much of its popularity among tourists to the majestic Cathedral of Saint Pierre, the tallest cathedral in France. Along with the cathedral, there are other fascinating monuments and places to explore in the city like Oise Museum, Medieval and Roman Ruins, and Parc Marcel-Dassault.
