The Citadel: Point of view on the construction site

Built following the capture of the city by the Spanish in 1597, Amiens citadel was the result of Henri IV’s determination to strengthen his kingdom’s northern border. Despite its historical and architectural interest, and its contribution to the urban landscape, the fortress – which stands on an old Roman road, over the remains of Medieval and Renaissance fortifications – remains little known by the public at large.


Saint-Acheul Archaeological Garden

The cradle of the city, in the heart of the Saint-Acheul district, this site is an opportunity to play the part of an archaeologist – on a solo visit or as a family!
