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.

    In the middle of a formal park the building bears witness to the power of the coalmines of bygone days; built by an architect from Lille, Cordonnier, in an Art Deco style, it is adorned with skylights, gables with redans, ornels, etc.

  • Lens Railway Station

    Place du Général-de-Gaulle F - 62300 Lens

    This at least is what is evoked by the external architecture of this station, rebuilt in 1926 in Art Deco style. In the hall is a sandstone mosaic showing how coal is exploited.
