Stunning monument not far from the city centre. Great symbolism and amazing attention to details. Worth checking out.

Magnificent old City entrance gate
Dec 2019
This old gate is one of three still standing, surrounding Old Ville as part of the old wall defences that were once present.

Gate to Lille

Well worth a photo opportunity with the Belfry in the background. Lovely arch gateway with small gardens around it.

Statuesque gateway to the old city walls (now gone) - best seen from bellfry to start. Lovely little French gardens below road level

Nice architecture, but that's about it....
Jun 2019 • Couples
One of the old gates into the City on the South side - it's close to the Belfry tower so it's worth the walk to that area, but the Porte itself is not a lot to see - there's a small (very small( garden around it, but you can't get in it or up it. Very ornate with lots of sculptors and statues though, if that's your thing.

Very grand old gate but not much more
May 2019 • Friends
We came upon this old gate as wandering from the Musee des Beaux-Arts (outstanding) to the Vauban Citadelle (Maginifique)

It is well maintained and is one of only three of the gates of the city remaining. However that is all it is so it is worth a photo and a quick look...but not much more as there is nothing to do. There is a small box hedge garden around it.

Something you can see over the tour city with bus
Apr 2019 • Solo
I saw the Porte the Paris when I had a tour in the bus. Not too much to see though but it's always so nice to see where people used to enter the city
