There’s no better place than a belfry to experience a few thrills while enjoying a little history lesson. And the Aire-sur-la-Lys belfry has a lot to tell! I’m surprised by its location, well hidden behind the monumental town hall.
Taking the little rue Jules Hunnebelle, I come face to face with its slender yellow brick silhouette. I’m warned: all the way up, I’m going to find myself, like a modern-day lookout, in exactly the same place as those who watched over Aire-sur-La-Lys and the surrounding area centuries ago… The door opens, and it’s off for a climb full of surprises.
