"Abbeville" Picardie Things to Do Tip by DanielF

Picardie Things to Do: 31 reviews and 34 photos


The capital of the former County of Ponthieu is not but a shadow of what it was before the destructions of wars, but there are still a few monuments worht of a visit, including one of the oldest French belfries and the Collegiate Church of Saint-Vulfran, which has a magnificent Flamboyant Gothic (unifnished) facade. Pictured here is a detail of the portal.

Directions: On the Somme river, in the so-called Picardie maritime.
