The old buildings which have a story to tell
Accompanied by your youngest child, you decide to go to Saint Valery sur Somme, which you were able to catch a glimpse of from the tourist train during the previous day. One of the three ports of the Baie de Somme estuary has an exceptional heritage. The medieval town is thus a member of the most beautiful detours in France network (Plus Beaux Détours de France – having interesting heritage, craft and gastronomic identity, quality accommodation and welcome). Strolling in the cobbled streets, discover the ramparts and the Guillaume towers, Saint Martin’s church, the quays running alongside the estuary and the sailors district of “Courtgain”. Each building in the town has its own story to tell, whether that of William the Conqueror, Joan of Arc, etc.
