A visit to Douai is guaranteed to be an adventure full of discoveries. After climbing to the top of the Douai’s belfry, enjoy the panoramic view of the town. Then visit the Chartreuse Museum located in a former convent. A trip to Douai also means discovering the region’s mining heritage. The historic mining centre takes you back down the corridors of time through three centuries of coal extraction in the region.
Forging the character and identity of the region, you cannot pass through Douai without visiting or seeing one of these unmissable monuments. There is something for every taste and from every era!
Climb to the top of the belfry, become a budding archaeologist at the Arkéos Museum-Park, put yourself in the shoes of an impressionist at the Musée de la Chartreuse or put on your miner’s helmet at the Centre Historique Minier de Lewarde.
