The Destination Terres et Merveilles has a rich heritage as witnessed by exceptional historic sites, villages and monuments and invites you to immerse yourself in its different eras. Just follow the guides and take on the belfries, take the stairs from ancient monuments, descend into caves or explore vast historic spaces.

Museums, castles, abbeys, chapels and churches make up the richness of our destination.

We can cite the Saint-Riquier Abbey, founded in 625: since 2012 it has housed a Cultural Meeting Center dedicated to writing. It was founded by the future Saint Riquier in 625, on a source, the object of a very ancient pagan cult.

Or the town of Rue which has kept the Belfry, the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, a pure masterpiece of flamboyant Gothic art, the Chapel of the Hospice and a half-timbered house.
