(10) - Bon Secours BE / FR


  Travelling in Northern France from Condé sur l'Escaut (F) on the D935 towards Peruwelz you see the Basilika on top of the hill from a distance.
   Yet the church lies in Belgium! This picture was taken from the French side.
   Closer look: notice the Belgian road and national signs in front of the church, telling the driver he just arrived in Belgium.
   The D935 in direction of Condé sur l'Escaut (F) photografed from the church. The language spoken on both sides of this borderland is French.
  Leaving Belgium: place name sign on the left, old French border stone on the right.
