Roubaix is situated on the Canal de Roubaix. It virtually adjoins Lille to the north and, together with neighboring Tourcoing, is a part of the urban agglomeration of Lille. It is near the Belgium border, located 5 miles to the north of the confluence of the Auto Routes A1, A23, A25, A27 and A14 and 144 miles north of Paris. Roubaix has adopted a program of rebuilding on a massive scale, which will in eventually give its city center a completely new look. The heritage of Roubaix bears the heavy imprint of the 19th century, with huge industrial buildings, homes of industrial barons and great civic monuments such as the Town Hall on the Grand'Place.
