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
Waiting to be discovered: the Belfry, towers and moats of its fortifications, Gothic abbey church and abbey, many 16th and 17th century bourgeois houses, chapel and cloisters of the Hôtel-Dieu (poor house/hospital) and the 'Napoleon house'.
Below the curved vaults, circa 1190, can be seen a vertical tombstone. It's the cenotaph of the founder of this collegiate church, Aléaume de Fontaine, Lord of Longpré. The crypt also houses a monumental carved scene of the entombment of Christ, dating from the 16th century.
