Bailleul - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Nord

Camped atop a slight hill, Bailleul never lets the traveler indifferent.

Subtle blend of the attractions of the city and the mildness of the countryside, it leaves visitors with images of towers, gables and sounds of chimes.

Destroyed more than 90% during the first World War, Bailleul is revealed today one of the prettiest towns in Flanders.

The city has a wonderful heritage but has mostly preserved the ancient map of the city with its traditional buildings.
