The medieval old town
Located in the estuary of the Somme, it offers in addition to its historical interest, the opportunity to walk through its streets, admiring its old stones and, during the right season, to take advantage of the many flowers that grow in the area: sensitives, hollyhocks, etc.
This botanical garden will be of interest for the simply curious person to the connoisseur. In this restricted space of Saint Valéry sur Somme of 1700 m², over a thousand species are present and labeled.
Visitors, you will leave undeniably serene from this truly original garden.

The district Courtgain
The area where fishermen live has changed little since its foundation in the 16th century is called the "Courtgain" because fishermen earn most often just enough to survive. Their houses are built without comfort hillside along narrow alleys. The single room on the ground floor served as a place of life, two small rooms upstairs to house children, often many. No running water, no electricity, much less sewer filtration: buckets were discharged into streams in the middle of the street. Life was spent in the street where the fishermen used to mend their nets on the doorstep.
