Montreuil sur mer : "an historical chapter in a green landscape "

Montreuil sur mer is a fortified city established on high ground surrounded by ramparts.

The 3 km walk around the ramparts is very easy, you can even take a break on one of the benches,it gives you an unlimited view of the Canche valley and the surrounding landscapes.

The citadel (one of the most visited site in the city) can be a very good starting point for your walk round the ramparts : take the path on the right of the citadel which will bring you to the west of the ramparts.
