The Belfries of Belgium and France is a group of 56 historical buildings designated by UNESCO as World Heritage Site. 33 of the belfries are located in Belgium and 23 in France in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Picardie régions in the northern tip of France. These 12 are all from the Nord-Pas-de-Calais région.  
Artois was an historic province of the Kingdom of France. Nowadays it forms the interior of the French département Pas-de-Calais.
