About this place
Roubaix is above all a working class and industrial city, but it also has an exceptional historical and cultural heritage. It is the former Art Deco municipal swimming pool that today houses the superb Museum of Art and Industry with its collections of paintings, sculptures, drawings, textiles, fashion, design and ceramics. Barbieux Park is a haven of peace and greenery in the heart of Roubaix. With more than 60 species of plants, it offers a veritable botanical world tour! Roubaix, sporting city, is also the finishing line for the famous 250-kilometre Paris-Roubaix cycle race nicknamed "The Northern Hell".
