Former capital of the region of Hainaut, the city emerged during the Middle Ages, first as a border of the Holy Roman Empire. Prestigious guilds and religious groups are formed here. Once it passes to the French, Valenciennes is fortified by Vauban in the 17th century. After the development of embroidery and porcelain, the coal mining industry developed significantly in the 13th century through to the beginning of the 20th century. The Musée Houiller de Lille is a very beautiful testimony to this. Today, the city has lost its fortifications and many buildings that were destroyed during the Second World War. However, that hasn’t stopped its revival most notably thanks to its high-speed railway and university.
Head to Château de Beloeil for a stroll around the park among the trees, ponds, follies and flowerbeds in these French-style gardens. To discover this city’s coal mining past you should visit the Mining History Centre in Lewalde, just 30 km from Valenciennes.

Located on the Place Verte, it has a beautiful collection of Flemish art. It was also the birthplace of famous artists. Like the painter Watteau, immortalized by a sculpture of another local glory, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, in the park of the same name. The Basilica Notre-Dame du Saint-Cordon and the Dodenne Watchtower, the last remnants of the medieval fortifications, are also worth a visit.
