Lille, capital of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, is a city of contrasts. It is home to a city center with buildings dating from the 17th century and outlying areas built up around modern industrialization. In and around Lille there are hundreds of museums, historic sites and buildings, and parks and recreation areas. The Palais des Beaux Arts de Lille, the Fine Arts Museum, houses a collection of paintings, sculptures, and ceramics dating from the 15th century. It is considered the second most important art collection in France, following the Louvre. The city has a vibrant nightlife and on weekends locals meander around Lille’s many markets.
