Maubeuge

Maubeuge
The Essential
Fortified by Vauban, Maubeuge was badly damaged in the Second World War. The town was then rebuilt over time, until the 1970s, to plans by the architect André Lurçat, but it has been beset by successive crises. Today it is the national theatre Le Manège that is making waves with its international programme.
