Lille and its Flemish architectural heritage, the fortified town of Bergues, the Opal Coast edged with beautiful fine sand beaches, the picturesque mills of Flanders, impressive belfries, superb museums, the Mining History Centre of Lewarde, two Regional Nature Parks for walking and a series of carnivals make the Nord a very interesting and activity-packed place to explore.


Facing the English coast, the Gris-Nez cape (Grey Nose Cape) marks the passage from the Channel to the North Sea. Offering both diverse scenery and historic places of interest, the Pas-de-Calais is renowned for its elegant seaside resorts and its long sandy beaches on the Opal Coast, where both relaxation and sports activities are catered for. The Pas-de-Calais also boasts designated Cities of Art and History, such as Boulogne-sur-Mer and its fortified upper town of Saint-Omer with its Gothic cathedral, and Arras and its two magnificent squares.
