Chamber of Commerce Tips (8)

: Nice place

Chambre du Commerce and Belfry

First a precision: Lille has beautiful and well 2 belfries and the one of which speak to us here is the smallest one of the two.

The architect Mary Louis Cobbler constructs the buildings between 1910 and 1921 (the first war interrupted the works!) Does not visit itself! The belfry contains the bells of 27 cloches(bell sometimes it "P'tit Quinquin, see the things à do)

The building is style Renaissance Flemish and the belfry peaks to 70 meters hight.

As all the belfries, it is classified heritage world-wide by the UNESCO

---oooOOOooo---

D'abord une précision: Lille a bel et bien 2 beffrois et celui dont nous parlons ici est le plus petit des deux.

L'architecte Marie-Louis Cordonnier construit les bâtiments entre 1910 et 1921 (la première guerre interrompis les travaux!) Ne se visite pas ! Le beffroi renferme le carillon de 27 cloches(sonne parfois le "P'tit Quinquin, voir les things to do)

Le bâtiment est de style Renaissance Flamande et le beffroi culmine à 70 m de hauteur.

Comme tous les beffroi, il est classé patrimoine mondial par l'UNESCO

The Chamber of Commerce

This ornate building dates from the beginning of the twentieth century. It was built in a style called Neo-Flemish, to fit in with the older Flemish-looking buildings nearby.

Second photo: The bell tower of the Chamber of Commerce building, as seen from the foyer of the opera house. The lights between the two clocks are reflections of the chandeliers in the opera house lobby.

Chambre du Commerce and Vieux...

Chambre du Commerce and Vieux Lille.
This building is not all that impressive. It's nice, but the real beauty lies in the quarter of Lille called Vieux Lille, or 'Old Lille.' Here, the streets are narrow and beautiful, the houses and courtyards have not changed much at all in the past few centuries. The Flemish architecture stands out on the townhouses.
This quarter is where all the haute-couture fashion boutiques are. You can find many different shops for varying styles and prices. Many people shop these stores during the day and then hang out in the quarter at night.

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry

This is not a common building in the city but surely is one of the most photographed building in Lille where each visitors attracted to his unique style

Built by the Flemish architect Louis-Marie Cordonnier also the architect of the Opera Lille ,he was commissioned to design the same style as he did the other buildings in the Place du theater in Vieux Lille

The belfry tower is 76 meters high and symbolizes the strength of the commercial city the way to 1668 belonged to Lille Flanders

Located on the perimeter of the building on the ground floor accessible from the street the idea room to the junction where you find the shop with luxury brands also for upscale restaurant
