Travel Tips for Roubaix

Cobbled roads

by filipdebont

If you pronounce the word Roubaix, most people will remember the cobbles.

As since many years Roubaix is the finish of the bicycle race Paris - Roubaix.

It is certainly one of the toughest races in the world.

More then 256 km with at least 54 km of cobbled roads . . . .

A real challenge for the cyclists and their super light bikes . . .

The result of 54 km of cobbled roads: many flat tyres.

In this region there are still left many of these roads, and I can assure you that is not really pleasant to drive along such accidental road.

But I hope they can preserve the cobbled roads that still exist, as they are the silent witnesses of the industrial-archaeological history of this region. The emotions of the supporters along the cobbled roads when the cyclists pass on their way to reach the Velodrome de Roubaix.

5 Senses - Seeing - Smelling - Tasting

by filipdebont

For the sense - Seeing there is not needed much explanation, as it is clear that there is a lot see in this museum, on pieces of art and on architecture of this remarkable building.

For the Smelling - sense, you can get kind of smelling strips at the ticket office and then you can discover different smells while visiting the museum (this we have not done).

And the tasting - sense is in the museum restaurant where you can taste some delicious dessert, made by the master confectioner (he used to work in the very famous pastry shop Meert in Lille).

Great collection of paintings

by filipdebont

In the former Art-Deco swimming pool, now the museum of Art and Industry La Piscine in Roubaix you can see a great collection of paintings.

There is a great collection of painters of the region of Roubaix.

I really loved to look at the paintings of Remy Cogghe with his cock fight painting, it is really amazing when you look at those faces they look so realistic.

More paintings in my Yravelogues.
