The town of Bailleul, several times destroyed during its history, was splendidly rebuilt after the first world war. The Grand'Place square, with a typical Flemish architecture, is full of charm, with its beautiful houses, its town hall of neo-Flemish style, and its imposing bell tower 62 metres high. The latter is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and possesses a carillon with 35 bells. From the top, the view of the plain and mountains of Flanders is magnificent!

Additional information
Bailleul

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.
