This attractive sailors' district is great for a walk. Crossed by two little parallel streets, it extends as far as the Sailors' Wayside cross with wonderful views over the Baie de Somme. Nicely decked with flowers, the (late 18th century) houses are painted in bright colours - an age-old tradition
The Boucher-de-Perthes museum is housed in one of Abbeville's oldest buildings, the belfry dating from 1209 (one of the oldest in France). Collections include many objects from the rich archaeological heritage of the Somme and some outstanding examples of medieval Picardy sculpture.
