    aisle
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: Here you see more views of Saint-Vaast cathedral:
    1) an aisle of the church with a precious carpet against the wall;
    2) the orgue, which is not so beautiful as the church would deserve;
    3) the high altar;
    4) a memorial tablet dedicated to the one million soldiers of the British Empire who died during World War I and who mostly rest in France.

    Favorite thing: I can thoroughly recommend Europ' Touring to anyone that has a BMW motorcycle and is looking for a competent and friendly dealership.

    I take my bike there for it's services from the UK and this involves a ferry and a 70 miles trip to get there.

    Patrice the owner speaks English as well as his native French. Check out their website. Tell them I recommended you!!

    Address: 4 rue Roger Salengro, 62000 Arras, France

    Fondest memory: (It would be nice if there was a "tip" area to take into consideration those of use that use cars and motorcycles to tour away from the herds in coaches, trains and planes!)

    Flemish baroque style

    Place des H��ros

    Fondest memory: Arras has the two most beautiful squares of Nord-Pas-de-Calais: Place des Héros and Grand'Place. These cobbled squares are surrounded with 155 houses in Flemish baroque style. It's quite impressive viewing the uninterrupted alignment of beautiful houses for the first time.

    Fondest memory: This nice cat was looking at us from a window, so I photographed it. In the second pic, my mum appears next to the cat.
