Between Lens and Arras, each town has rebuilt itself through an incomparable heritage. Historical witnesses of the First World War, in the Collines et Plaines d’Artois, History is honored, shared, but above all apprehended. On these former battlefields, museums, gardens and cemeteries of memory have been built. As majestic as they are emblematic, these monuments transmit today the memory of the departed as a true portal to the past.
