Place du Théâtre, Lille

The square appears off the Grand'Place and is named after a theatre that was destroyed by fire in 1903. In 1907, a Louis XVI-style opera house (entirely restored in 2003) was built in its place, followed by the imposing chamber of commerce and industry and its 76m-high belfry, built in a neo-Flemish style, inspired by the Rang du Beauregard, the superb row of buildings just opposite.
