Lille is home to beautiful historical architecture of the 15th, 17th and 18th centuries, such as the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de la Treille, the Citadel and Port de Paris. Since the 1980s, Lille has also been home to an ultra-modern district: Euralille. The district is full of futuristic buildings designed by, among others, the Dutch Rem Koolhaas. Your arrival station, Lille Europe, is also located in this area. It’s certainly worthwhile to look around at the Euralille shopping centre. The special futuristic architecture will continue to surprise you. Prefer little boutiques? Then visit Vieux Lille: the historic neighbourhood consists exclusively of narrow, picturesque streets and old guild shops.
