Dunkerque is nowadays the route many take into France and indeed is the third busiest port of France. The past is reinvented every year for two months in a carnival featuring the town ‘giants’.

The reconstruction was functional and the architecture unremarkable, but the Musée des Beaux Arts survived and has some superb paintings.
