The origins of the cite go back to the Merovingian era. In the Middle Ages, Lens was linked to the county of Artois. It became part of the French Crown in 1180. The town’s location on a trade route saw it prosper. After falling under the possession of the Spanish Crown between 1526 and 1659, it experienced a real boom in 1841 with the discovery of coal. It was almost destroyed in World War 1, but was rebuilt in between the two wars.
There are lots of green spaces in the town. You can take a walk during your stay in the 60 hectare grounds of Parc de la Glissoire, where you’ll find more than 10 kilometers of paths and over 8000 trees and bushes. You can also do lots of different water sports there, and even go quad biking. If you’re with the kids, make the most of the 30 hectare outdoor activity centre, Les Faitelles, as well as mini-golf, a football pitch, an area to play pétanque, ping-pong tables and a fishing lake.
