Coming Soon ... 2024
The City of Tournai aims to enhance its UNESCO area and city centre with a new economic and tourist asset: the CARRÉ JANSON, located at the foot of
the Cathedral (place Paul-Emile Janson).
Thanks to European funds, the building of the Former Priests, which dates back from the 13th century and served as a resting place for priests until 2008, will be completely redesigned. You will also be able to experience a unique multisensory tour with your family, in the heart of the historic city of Tournai. In historical rooms, the permanent exhibition will immerse you in imaginary and artificial settings. An original exhibition of a new kind dedicated to the city of Tournai will appeal to all the senses of visitors.
Various spaces will also be set up:
- A 330m² panoramic terrace offering a UNIQUE VIEW of the city and the Notre-Dame Cathedral, at a height of over 23m !
- Auditorium with 250 seats,
- Modular work rooms,
- Reception desk and shop.
