About Calais

Calais has been a major port since the Middle Ages and a centre of transport and trade with England. Until 1558 the town was claimed by England and was known as the "brightest jewel in the English crown" due to its importance for trading in tin, lead, lace and wool and grew into a thriving centre for wool production. During the Napoleonic Wars of the early 1800s, Calais was a staging area for French troops as part of a planned invasion of England. The town was nearly destroyed during World War II as a strategic bombing target of the invading German forces who overtook the town in the Siege of Calais. Today, Calais is a major transport hub and is visited by millions of tourists each year.
