Once a municipal pool done in extravagant art-deco style, the 'piscine de Roubaix' has since been transformed into a museum although has kept many of the interior features of its former incarnation. I've been meaning to visit this spot for ages - a stunning must-do of Lille tourism tucked away unexpectedly in one of the city's less interesting suburbs. In much the same way as we all don't get around to visiting cool local stuff until we have a guest (why is that?) I took my mother here on her most recent trip over.
