Town visits
Quartier Saint-Leu d'Amiens
In the Middle Ages, water and mills set the pace of the city. Narrow streets with historical names attest to the city's past based on crafts. Today, art galleries, bookshops, boutiques and antique dealers mingle with the inhabitants of this district with its narrow and colourful houses. By foot, boat or in a horse-drawn carriage, take the time to discover Saint-Leu. Sit on a terrace to admire the Notre-Dame cathedral, or try out one of the "trendy" bars later on. Early birds will enjoy the "Water market" on Saturday morning.

Cathedrals, churches and abbeys
Cathédrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens
A UNESCO heritage site.
Proof of real technical genius, the Notre-Dame d'Amiens cathedral demonstrates architectural harmony. Built from 1220 to 1288, its size makes it one of the biggest Gothic buildings ever built: 145 m long, 42 m high, and a total volume of 200,000 m3. Its indoor and outdoor statuary is just as remarkable as its architecture. Since it was restored, the polychromy of its Gothic doors has become a main reference. This revelation gave rise to the "Amiens, a cathedral in colours" show, which offers a reproduction of the original medieval colours.
