What can I discover here?
Gonesse has a history stretching back into the Middle Ages. The riverside town has grown throughout the centuries into an important metropolitan suburb of Paris. Since France's eventful Carolingian period, cereal crops have been grown in Gonesse. Baking remained a strong part of the town's identity for almost a thousand years, until migration to the capital in the 18th century took much of that industry to central Paris. The world's first unmanned hydrogen balloon landed in Gonesse on an August day in 1783, before terrified peasants reportedly destroyed it with pitchforks.

Additionally, the major hospital has 2000 employees. Gonesse has six different economic zones, all well connected by infrastructure and each dedicated to a different business sector. Investors have recently developed 80 hectares of the city as part of the Europa City project, now a pivotal tourist attraction for the city.
