This is a very nice location to visit. It immediately takes you back to the past. Nicely restored. When we visited there was a bookmarket going on.

In winter or in summer, this building is always so beautiful. Inside you will find a small market, selling anything from old books to old currencies or old coins...worth walking though..

I was hoping to see the cloister type internal square. However everything was closed. It looked fairly interesting from the outside in a prominent position in the middle of "The Grand Place".

One of the best buildings in Lille with a book market in the inner courtyard. Right in the centre so very easy to find. Nothing to dislike.

The Old Stock Exchange shown on the City Tour, but It is worthwhile to walk around the villa entrance with posters, old interesting books, long playing records. The building is very decorative with gold.
