Lille Cathedral, the Basilica of Notre Dame de la Treille (French: Basilique-cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-la-Treille de Lille), is a Roman Catholic church and basilica located in Lille, France. It is the cathedral church of the Archdiocese of Lille. The church was built in honor of the Virgin Mary and takes its name from a 12th-century statue of the saint that has miraculous properties ascribed to it. Originally a simple church, it was given the title of minor basilica by Pope Pius X in 1904. In 1913, the Archdiocese of Cambrai was split to create the diocese of Lille, with the basilica serving as its new cathedral.
The cross, 1.5 x 1.5 inches, wide, hangs from a contemporary vintage inspired rosary style chain with 1 mm long freshwater pearls. 22 inches long. Five strands of chain, gold-plated clasp.
