Despite archeaological discoveries dating back to Roman times, Mouscron would only be mentioned in records for the first time in the year 1060.
Its name comes from "Mosscher-on" which, literally translated, means marshland covered in moss.
Today, and as well as having a strong commercial industrial activity, the city takes care in preserving its 4 main tourist attractions:
- The City Hall,
- the medieval "Château des Comtes",
- the Saint Bartholomew church,
- and the Folklore museum.
So why not seize the opportunity to visit the region during the Christmas period?
