You Are Here – Lille

Starbucks You Are Here Lille mug has been spotted in stores this week. This is the city in French Flanders, on the north of France, right next to the Belgium border. Here are some points of interest spotted on the mug:
– The Porte de Paris (“Gate of Paris”) is an Arc de Triomphe built in the 17th century to commemorate Louis XIV conquering the city. It looks like a building, rather than an arch, which makes it special.
