What's good to know
"The Capital of Flanders" and beyond that of the North of France, Lille, is the fourth most populated city in the country (a more than 1 million people urban area). A dynamic metropolis with a strong industrial heritage, the city offers a preserved and unique Flemish architecture. Visitors love to wander between the Grand Place and the Notre-Dame-de-la-Treille basilica, and lost their way in the Braderie de Lille (the largest in Europe), heir to the medieval European fairs and a vivid testimony of the deeply rooted commercial culture in the city.
Lille is also a major cultural center: “European Capital of Culture 2004”, labeled City of Art and History, it is home to both a Modern Art Museum and a Beaux-Arts Centre.
Proof of this flourishing cultural life, and of Amazon's local engagement, a "street-artists" crew has realized a 50sqm fresco on LIL1's men and women live during the oppening of the Amazon Tours in France, on April 11th, 2015.
