The house of Gilles de la Boë, also known as Bon Bouillon, is a Flemish Mannerist style house located at the corner of Place Louise-de-Bettignies and Avenue du Peuple-Belge in Lille. Built in 1636 near the old port of Lille for the trader in spices and fabrics Gilles de la Boé, the house has also hosted a tavern, "Au Bon Bouillon", hence its nickname. Built of stone and brick, the house comprises a ground floor, surmounted by sandstone arches, and a floor where openings and niches alternate, surmounted by triangular or semicircular pediments. The set is decorated with heavy garlands of fruit that connect thick carriers.
