While it may not have as rich a history as other European churches, this gothic style hall church in Lille’s historic centre is nevertheless regal and imposing. Construction started at the end of the fourteenth century and went on for more than four hundred years after, with completion only in the 19th century. It’s noted for it’s pipe organs, stained glass windows, Gothic Furniture, and for the tomb of Charles Ferdinand d’Artois. The two marble statues from the left to the right on the tomb represent the city of Lille and religion respectively. In 1914, the church was declared a national historical monument. The building is grand, and solemn - an atmosphere of stillness and peace pervades it. If you can, catch the service.
