City gate: I

La Porte de Gand dates from the 1600s and is one of three remaining city gates to the old walled city of Lille. You approach the along cobblestoned streets that lead through a fashionable dining section of Lille. The gate itself houses a restaurant, la Terrasse des Ramparts.

    How interesting and pretty! How many days did you spend in Lille? It looks like someplace I’d like to visit.

    I love both of those Portes. I was not aware that there was a restaurant on top of the Porte de Gand. I should check it out next time I am in town.
