This is a magnificent, opulent building that wreaks of old money. The details in the facades, the lead work to the most complicated of roofs and the crisp state of repair.

This is quality and well worth inspection.

Please spare the time to stand back and look up.

A must see if visiting Lille, located by the main square and the theater square. The old stock exchange is a great example of renaissance/ Flemish influence. You can find old coins/maps/books for sale.

Wander in to enjoy the architectural features and admire the inside of the building. Explore the stalls and the antiques or just go in to hide from the heat or rain for a while. You may also want to visit on Sunday night when a French version of passion tango is danced by dozens of participants in the centre of the courtyard.

A fantastic building. In the afternoon inside the court yard sells old books, a really chilled out place. on sundays poeple dance in the court. A really nice coffee shop 'honey and pie' one of the shops within Vieille Bourse (and several others around lille), their flavoured coffee and hot chocolate, is to die for yum yum.

The Vieille Bourse is wonderful as a building to enjoy from the outside and in the courtyard. Catch it as you explore Lille, but make sure to be there in the afternoon when the courtyard is open and the collectors market is in full swing. Unless you are an architectural aficionado the building may not detain you too long, but the market will if you are the sort of person to be tempted to rummage through books, posters, prints, toys, models, vinyl and postcards. If you really want to linger you can play chess or more exotic games.

Don't miss this! Not only is the building itself really beautiful and interesting, but once you wander inside you're surrounded by sellers of old books, prints, postcards, and more - all bits of old, meticulously organized, fascinating paraphernalia. You'll want to be able to spend time wandering among it all and sifting through it to find treasures that speak to you!

What a great building. The old stock exchange with its open quad is a fantastic old building. The mirror stars hanging down are great and the book stalls are fantastic.
