The old part of Lille is the heart and soul of Lille. The northeast district of Lille, has successfully preserved the oldest heritage. Most often , people walk because everything is close : the market on the concert place, the upmarket boutiques, the renowned shops like Fred or Meert … but the neighborhood is easy to reach by car, as they are allowed, and the train station and subway are nearby . This is the richest area with ancient constructions built during the nineteenth century . With its cobbled streets, slightly inclined facades, the old Lille conceals architectural treasures : the Opera , Notre Dame de la Treille , the Museum of the Hospice Comtesse. In the pedestrian streets , you will discover tlots of cafes that invite passers-by stop by. Remarkably preserved, we say that you have to pass by the old town ' nose up' to enjoy it.
