Plunge into the "Passage of Time": this multimedia show, screened at the Tourist Office, retraces 2,000 years of the history of Tournai in 20 minutes. You will discover the illustrious figures who have marked the City of Clovis for eternity, from Gallo-Roman times to current day.

You can then head off to discover the town's historic quarters: a series of panels, lecterns and statues guide you to the main features, with highlights including Belfry, Grand-Place, Cathedral and Escaut quaysides.

Feeling like learning interesting things about the cathedral listed "Unesco World Heritage" ? Watch then the other film called "Heaven carved from stone".
