Travel Tips for Beauvais

History of Beauvais

by grayfo

The town of Beauvais or “Caesaromagus” (Cesar’s market) was an important Gallo-Roman town until the middle of the 3rd Century, and is the capital of the Oise Département of Picardy.

The town dates from a time prior to the Roman conquest when Beauvais was the capital of the Gallic Belloveci tribe. When the Romans took the town, they called it Caesaromagus. The town was latter known, by the Romans, as Civitas de Bellovacis and then as Bellovacum.

See the Astronomical Clock at St.-Pierre Cathedral

by hquittner

There is a“mechanical clock”in the North transept . Actually it is an astronomical clock. with over 90,000 parts. There is also one in Strasbourg Cathedral that was rebuilt in1842 on the works of an older simpler one of 1571. This one was built in the 1860’s by a local enginee, A.-L. Verite. It locates the positions of the planets, provides the current time in many cities around the world and acts out a Last Judgement (5 times a day). Nearby stands a simpler 16C clock. Try to inquire and drop by to see the action.

"Rue Carnot, 06:21 foggy"

The fog added a mood to the street during my morning cigarette and later put me into a mood when it caused my flight to Malta to be cancelled.
The Beauvais Tille Airport is a hub for discount airlines Ryanair, Wizzair & Blue Air serving Paris. There is frequent bus service (about 15 € cash / 1 hour 15 minutes) to and from the Paris Metro, Porte Maillot and the small airport outside Beauvais.
(* For some reason in 2008 the Ryanair clerks would not accept cash from those who exceeded baggage limits and required a credit card to pay the additional fees.)

* Cash for the bus, credit cards for the bags.
