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.

On the Côte d'Opale
At the gateway to French Flanders, the magnificent landscapes of the Côte d'Opale reveal all their beauty for 120 kilometres, between the Bay of Somme and Dunkirk. Our journey begins in Calais, one of the largest towns along the coast and world capital of mechanical lace.

Presented by: Carole Gaessler.
