First there are the sources, blue, mesmerizing, irrigating the dry valleys that hew the plateau, marking the undulations of Crécy Plain. Then the trace of the Somme, pouring out slowly towards the sea and describing large meanders where marshes and peat bogs follow each other. From one point to another, Amiens, the "Little Venice of the North" and Abbeville display their Gothic pride built on the wealth of the river, which ends up in one of the most beautiful bays in the world. At the heart of ecosystems, conducive to strolling and discovery, Saint-Riquier's Abbey on the Belfries route recalls its prestigious past, while brick and stone stately homes dot the landscape rich in parks and walled gardens, a mirror of the bucolic Authie Valley .
