City of culture

Over the centuries, Amiens has confirmed its avant-garde character and at the same time remained true to its fabulous heritage. Its philosophy is to draw from the past to build the future. And that is the source of its wealth, its depth and originality.
The Notre-Dame cathedral, a listed World Heritage Monument, is a perfect illustration of the audacity of Amiens. The writer, Jules Verne, felt this spark and made it his adoptive town, his ideal city. Today, contemporary art is visible in every district. Take the time to get to know Amiens and be won over by its charms.
