    The Ghent gate

    Porte de Gand

    On the end the street of Gand, where one finds many restaurants.

    This is all what remains of the walls and dates back to 1617 (Spanish period)

    The façade offers to the visitor an example of construction "larded" : the brick punctuated in a manner symmetrical and uniform silexstones.

    It's a restaurant upstairs

    ---oooOOOooo---

    Elle termine la rue de Gand, où on trouve de nombreux restaurants.

    C'est tout ce qui reste des remparts et date de 1617 (période Espagnole)

    La façade offre au visiteur un exemple de construction "lardée": la brique entrecoupée de façon symétrique et régulière de silex.

    Il y a un restaurant à l'étage

    ---oooOOOooo---

    Porte de Gand

    In the old days, Lille had a city wall. Porte de Gand is one of the three remaining gates. Gand means Ghent so you can figure out that this gate stands in the direction of Ghent (Belgium).
