Located not far from the Lille-Flandres station, in the North, the Saint-Maurice church was erected in the 14th century in the form of an impressive hall church with vessels of the same height and the same width.
Listed as a Historic Monument, this Gothic and neo-Gothic style building underwent several transformations until the 19th century, including an extension leading to the widening of the surrounding roads.
Stripped during the French Revolution, the church nevertheless has some beautiful decorative elements inside it, such as paintings from the old convents of the city such as The Flight into Egypt from the 17th century or scenes from the Passion from the 18th century. The Saint-Maurice church of Lille also houses a monument to the Duke of Berry containing the viscera of Charles Ferdinand d'Artois who was assassinated and unveiling very beautiful white marble statues representing the city of Lille on the one hand and the Religion of somewhere else.
Restored several times in the years 2000 and 2010, it notably has a nave with seven bays, four side chapels or an ambulatory with three radiating chapels.
