Opera de Lille

Lille's first Opera House, built in 1875 by Michel Lequeux, a native of Lille, was destroyed by fire in 1903. To replace the neoclassicism of the destroyed edifice, Cordonnier suggested a style that was decidedly Louis XVI, with an interior decoration as sumptuous as its outward appearance. The building was inaugurated in 1923, with Massenet, Lalo and Bizet on the program. Notice the high contours at the summit of the building depicting Apollo and his Muses, by Hippolyte Lefébvre, an allegory of Music, one of Alphonse Cordonnier's works on the left. On the other side, enjoy tragedy by the sculptor Lemaire.

Beffroi de Lille

Started in 1924 and completed in 1932, Beffroi de Lille follows the most traditional examples of belfries in the middle ages. Designed by the architect, Emile Dubuisson, in a neo-flemish style, it conveys all of its grandeur onto the town hall. Reaching 105 meters in height, it scrapes the Northern sky and reveals an exceptional panorama, a view which stretches as far as the Flanders Mountains. Climb the steps to see the horizon. After descending, or before making the climb, you can cross the immense interior of the town hall and appreciate the works of contemporary artists which are displayed there.
