Gothic style abbey church built in the early 16th century, now a listed historical monument. It houses many treasures, including relics, tombstones and a 19th century altar, the work of the Duthoit brothers.
The only complete 18th century Cistercian abbey in France. Be sure to visit this gem of Baroque art, an outstanding site, combining monastic simplicity with the world of rococo: the organ case, hanging angels, high altar, drawing rooms with rocaille woodwork will all surprise you.

South of Amiens, "Au Fil de l'Angora" is a farm breeding angora rabbits - (very) furry animals - and not something you see everyday. Of course, famous angora wool is produced here. Odile can tell you all about the extraordinary way in which this wool is produced. Shop selling unique items.
If you want to sample one of the best 'gâteaux battus' (traditional local brioche) in the Somme, then come along to the Boulangerie de Francis (Fréville). He uses his grandfather's recipe - it's a family affair. And Francis' little secret? Using only natural ingredients.
A bakery that has been in business for 200 years! Now run by the 6th generation of the Langlet family, still making the famous 'Pavés de Corbie' (hazelnut version of the Amiens macaroon) and sweet 'Carolus' (chunky cake/biscuits - raspberry, blackberry, pear...) Taste one and see!
