La Piscine, museum of art and industry

Museum of art and industry grouping collections of fine arts, applied arts and textiles of the 19th and 20th centuries in an old Art Deco swimming pool.

The big town square

LThe historic heart of the town is home to two of the most famous monuments of Roubaix: the town hall as a symbol of economic power in the town in the early 20th century, and the church of Saint Martin, one of the first churches of the Gothic Revival in the North of France. 

Saint Joseph’s church

Architectural gem from the late 19th century: murals and stained glass give this church a Byzantine atmosphere.

The Condition Publique

Former wool warehouse, rehabilitated by Patrick Bouchain in 2004, has since become a cultural factory.

The Rang des Drapiers

Lovely collection of eclectic style houses, built for wealthy Roubaix merchants.

The Manufacture des Flandres

Textile museum workshop where the noise of machinery, operated under your eyes, plunges you into the world of textile mills of the old days.

The former Motte-Bossut cotton mill

A real chateau of industry housing the National Archives of the World of Work since 1993.

The historic cycling track

The last meters of the legendary Paris-Roubaix race consisting of the "Crupelandt" alley, last paved area of the race where the names of all winners were engraved. Nearby, a new indoor cycling track now hosts international track cycling events. 

The Roubaix Canal

Built in the 19th century for the needs of the textile industry, it is open to pleasure boating from April to October and makes it possible to reach Escaut.

The Barbieux park

Beautiful English garden of more than thirty hectares, one of the largest north of Paris.

Shopping in Roubaix

Fashion & Design district
It is located around the La Piscine museum: fashion and decoration shops, art gallery and artists' studios have invested in this area once dedicated to the textile trade.
With over 170 shops, Roubaix is the bargain capital, especially with two centres and factory shops owned by the town:  Mc Arthur Glen et L’Usine.
