Calais
The Essential
The proximity of the English coast has shaped the destiny of Calais. The world's second largest port in terms of passenger traffic, life here is governed by the ferries, the presence of which makes for an unusual urban landscape. Whether leaving or arriving, passengers crowd the streets and beach, creating a bustle that does away with the long-standing duality of the town and the port. People are in Calais for one of two things: the lace or the shipping trade.
