Lens : Michelin's recommendations


In the north of France, some 30 km to the south-west of Lille, lies Lens, capital of the Gohelle, which preserves the memory of its mining past. The town was the head office of the great mining company of Lens and was an important railway centre for transhipping the coal for the mining companies located to the west of the town.
