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 Montagne de Frise affords wonderful views of the Somme valley: its lakes, meanders, magical mists. Plus a life-size history lesson, in the footsteps of the soldier-writer, Blaise Cendrars, who was stationed here during the Great War.
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'.
