On the way to Baie de Somme, you can visit Château de Bagatelle in Abbeville, a little example of Baroque fantasy from the 18th century, and the Royal Abbey of Saint-Riquier, a true jewel of Gothic architecture and among the most beautiful buildings in France. Between the Somme valley and the Authie valley, the Muches de Domqueur is a surprising visit to underground refuges dug by local inhabitants in the 17th century to escape from the Spanish during the Thirty Years War (1618-1648). At the heart of the coastal Picardy woodland, you can take a detour to Rambures Castle, a vast 15th century fortress and the first “brick and stone" castle built in France. In the Ancre valley, near the town of Albert, you can relive the Battle of the Somme during the First World War with a visit to the Somme 1916 Museum, the Newfoundland memorial in Beaumont Hamel and the Franco-British memorial in Thiepval. The“Circuit du Souvenir”continues towards Péronne, where the Great War Museum is located.
