Nord-Pas-De-Calais, France

If you ask a French person from outside of the two most northern regions what is in the north of France, they will tell you nothing besides mines and rain. And they would be correct to some extent. Yet, while the north is famous for its mines and rainy weather, it is also famous for the part that it played in the First World War. Besides the two most notable cities—Lille and Dunkirk–the interesting locations are Wambrechies–a city in the Nord department–and Notre-Dame-de-Lorette and Vimy (under the Pas de Calais tab).
