Only completed in 1999, Lille cathedral is a modern cathedral with a stunning white marble facade. Although the first stone was laid in 1854, the effects of WW1 and WW2 meant that most of its construction was not finished until 1947. In the 1990s the temporary brick facade was covered by 110 sheets of marble and the beautiful rose window was put in place.
