La Vieille Bourse, Lille Reviews
The Vieille Bourse (Old stock exchange), built from 1652 to 1653, is undoubtly the town's finest building. This building is made up of 24 little houses around an arched courtyard. A second-hand book market as well as chess players can be seen inside. In summer, tango demonstration.
Nice city good ambiance and also nearby from belgium. Normally they can understand some of Dutch. Though its called French Flanders
Very interesting place. The antique market is definately very interesting. Apparently on Sundays in the summer there are also tango sessions.
Peaceful courtyard with lots of market stalls selling oddities including used french postcards
Beautiful city not so far from Paris and lot of tings to visite... Very nice.
