Historical Monuments in Amiens
Amiens Cathedral (Notre-Dame d'Amiens)
(14)
Delving into the interior of the Cathedral of Amiens is like moving to the extreme grandeur. Its measures 133.5 meters long, 70 meters wide at the vaults and 42 meters high, making it one of the biggest Gothic cathedrals. It has 3 ships in which the plant is higher than the lateral side and enormous stained glass windows that make the light penetrate inside. The choir chapels are surrounded by radial or presents on the outside from the late 15th and 16th centuries with scenes of San Juan Bautista and San Fermin who was the first bishop of the city. In the choir axis one can see that a big stained glass window was donated to the cathedral in the year 1269. Also you can see interesting sculptures from different times. One of the most important is the labyrinth in the middle of the nave and drawn with tiles depicting the symbolic pilgrimage pilgrims had to make to the center.
Theme Parks in Plailly
Parc Astérix
(5)
Road going up the river to the Mas de la Balma, big cliffs if we are on the right path of the river, not recommended if you have vertigo. After the river it goes up and slowly just to its level, then we dive into a lush landscape, with nooks and thanks to several routes it allows us to get to Mas de la Balma. From here the way is not so practicable, but following the path of the river helped us reach the tops of Núria Valley.
Palaces in Chantilly
Château de Chantilly
(7)
The Castle of Chantilly is situated in the heart of a vast area of ​​7,800 hectares of land which is located in one of the largest forests in France, near Paris, they are the massive Three Forests (Chantilly, Halatte, and Ermenonville). This area has been owned since the Middle Ages by the owners of Chantilly Castle. In Chantilly Castle there is one of the most beautiful galleries of old paintings after the Louvre, and a very large library of rare books.
Paintball in Hénonville
Paintball Connexion
This paintball park is superb. There are 5 or 6 outdoor pitches, all different. It has a good layout plus a very good quality team. The framework is very safe, with little risk of accidents. Here, you can have a barbeque or buy sandwiches.
Gardens in Amiens
Parc Saint Pierre
(4)
At Parc Saint Pierre, you can see many things, for example, love between two doves as shown in my photos. This is an area of ​​tenderness and nature, an old man found me in the park and began to tell me stories and his views on life. It's more than a green space - it's a place of reunion.

Statues in Amiens
Dewailly Clock
(4)
Halfway between the Cathedral and Gambetta Square, we find one of the symbolic sculpture of Amiens, the Dewailly clock. It was originally located in the Gambetta Square until it was pretty much destroyed during the war and the clock disappeared. It was donated in 1896 by the former mayor-Mayor Dr. Dewailly and designed by architect Emile Ricquier. There's a figure of a woman with bare breasts which is the work of Albert Roze. With this work he wanted to make an allegory to spring.
Squares in Amiens
Place Gambetta
(2)
Situated in the pedestrian area of ​​Amiens, it is undoubtedly one of the main places of interest for locals and tourists. Several cafes, restaurants and shops are a special attraction during the hot days and it is not a strange sight to see young people in a swimsuit lying on the grass at the front of the fountain.
Churches in Gerberoy
St. Peter's Collegiate Church
During our walk through Gerberoy, we had no choice but to make a stop to see the Church of San Pedro. It dates back to the eleventh centry, and it was destroyed during the Hundred Years War. However it was built back in the fifteenth century. Being pretty deteriorated due to the passage of time, it was restored between the years of 1997-1999. Although its exterior isn't perhaps the most beautiful part of the Picardie, inside there remains something i hadn´t seen in many years, being the closed banks. I have spent many days trying to remember where I've seen this in Spain, probably in some old church of Castile but not sure. Does anyone know where?.
Palaces in Amiens
Ministere de la Justice
(3)
A nice,typical nineteenth-century French building, to be precise built in 1866. It consists of two wings and one front that connects the two. The architects were Juan Herbault and Natalis Daulle, with the sculptors Edmond Leveque and Samson. The front at whose door is reached by a beautiful staircase leads to an hexastyle Corinthian portico with pilasters of the same style. The fontón represents the order of justice,between the columns we see the statues of Cicero and Demosthenes and at the end Law and the Force on the steps.
Streets in Amiens
Rue des Trois Cailloux
(1)
Going to Amiens and and not taking a walk down Trois Cailloux street is like coming to Madrid and not walking down Preciados. The aforementioned pedestrianized street runs between the two most important squares of Amiens - Place Gambetta and Place René Goblet. Several international brand stores are located here too as wells as Galeries Lafayette, FNAC, C & A and McDonalds.
Of Touristic Interest in Amiens
Tour Perret
(1)
Amiens is one of those French towns that were partially destroyed during World War II by the enemy bombardment. Part of its architecture, then, was rebuilt after the war. The Perret Tower, 110 metres tall, was the first skyscraper in Europe. It's a place of great interest for all fans of high-rise buildings.
Cemeteries in Fère-en-Tardenois
Oise-Aisne American Cemetery
We were going from Chateau-Thierry to Soissons when something caught my eye. It was an American cemetery. Although we had to divert our route without knowing the distance you may have done the same. My curiosity about these site was not morbid but because honestly I love their majesty. They were about 2 or three miles from Fere-en-Tardenois, and occupied an area of ​​over 15 hectares. Here, 6,012 Americans from the First World War are buried. they died along the river Ourcq between this and the river Oise-Aisne in the Marne offensive Marne during July and August 1918, and the Oise-Aisne in August and September of the same year. During our visit of an hour and a half, nothing and no one appeared. The place was deathly silent and the peace and quiet we breathed in that place will be hard to forget.
Of Cultural Interest in Amiens
Maison de Jules Verne
(4)
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Children of Captain Grant, Journey to the Center of the Earth etc ... Who has not read or at least heard of these novels? Yes, this is the writer Jules Verne,ve did, does and will delight many young and not so young readers,ve love adventure, travel and using the imagination to take us to places we may never visit. The tour of the home was in Amiens, he was born in Nantes, and it was a couple of hours using an audio-guide speaking about his life and work, his journeys and the theatrical legacy regarding his success with many works from this genre. A visit not to be missed.
Nature Reserves in Saint-Quentin
Island Park
(2)
Island Park is a natural oasis in the city and the small kingdom of animals. Designed for the reproduction of animals. It has an area of ​​farm pets and a nature reserve. Access is via two entrances, one near the train station and the other overlooking the city of Rouvroy.
Museums in Cayeux-sur-Mer
Home of the Bay of Somme and the Birds
(1)
Here the birds involved in the shows simply do what they want, how they want and when they want. Guests are merely spectators of the birds at the Bay of Somme. I had the opportunity to attend one of these shows after visiting the small museum dedicated to the bird. A very interesting experience.
