Interesting
Montreuil-sur-Mer exudes a nostalgic feel, with its old streets lined with 18C mansions. The citadel, rebuilt by Vauban, and the shaded ramparts (16C-17C) offer broad views: Montreuil boasts a location on the edge of a plateau overlooking the Canche valley. The spot inspired Victor Hugo, who in 1837 chose it as the setting for one of the episodes of Les Misérables. Be sure to visit the church, Église St Saulve, an old Benedictine abbey built in the 11C and altered in the 13C and 16C.
