Hôtel de Ville, Calais

Hôtel de Ville, Calais (must see)

Founded in 1885 in the neo Flemish style of the 15th century, the town hall is one of Calais' finest landmarks. Built of brick and stone, the building commemorates the union of the cities of Calais and Saint Pierre in 1885 on a piece of dry land between the two towns. The belfry, 75 meters high, contains one of the most gorgeous chimes in the north of France which can be seen for miles around. On the first floor you can admire the large lounge, the room where weddings take place and the room of the town council; on the second floor are the magical stained glass windows depicting the re-conquest of the city.
