Treasures of the Hauts-de-France

From Lille, its historical capital, Carole Gaessler invites us to discover the treasures of French Flanders and join her on a trip to the coast, from the Bay of Somme to the immense North Sea dunes.

Programme summary:

In French Flanders
It's the story of an obsession, that of one of the greatest French kings for a low-lying land high in character. An obsession that lasted for twenty years, caused three wars and dozens of sieges. It's the story of the conquest of Flanders by Louis XIV.
