At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The celebration of the Virgin through the centuries.

In the middle of the 19th century, the project of erecting a vast building consecrated to the Virgin saw the light of day. Since the Middle Ages, the Virgin has been revered in the city by means of a miraculous statue protected by an iron trellis, where the name of the church comes from.

The construction of the building was immediately launched in the neo-Gothic style. However, the works dragged out and the building, still unfinished, obtained the title of cathedral from 1913 onwards after the foundation of the bishopric of Lille. In the 90s, the building was still unfinished.

Its façade was begun in 1999 after the opening of public subscription. Designed by the Lille architect Pierre-Louis Carlier, it is the result of a great technical prowess, made possible thanks to the collaboration of Peter Rice.
