Saint Omer,  la catedrale di Notre Dame -  Hauts-de-France, Francia

Chapelle de Guémy

Mont Saint-Louis and the ruins of the Guémy chapel are remarkable sites. Mont Saint-Louis, which rises to 112 m, is one of the richest limestone hillsides in the Hem valley. It overlooks the Flemish maritime plain to the north and the Hem valley to the south. The mountain offers a vast panorama over the maritime plain and the Artois region. To the north, you can see the twin towns of Ardres and Guînes, the plain stretching from Cap Blanc-Nez to Belgium, the coastline with the ports and factories of Calais, Gravelines and Dunkerque, and on a clear day across the Strait, the cliffs of southern England 70km away. You can then look out over the other side of Mont Saint-Louis, towards the Hem valley, where the villages are nestled in the greenery. Rue du Mont Saint-Louis 62890 Tournehem-sur-la-Hem.

Italian Theatre

In Saint-Omer, hidden away in the heart of the town hall, lies a small theater of forgotten splendor and little-known gilding… The theater was closed to the public for safety reasons for 45 years. After a major refurbishment project, it reopened its doors in autumn 2018. It can now be visited with a guide and can also host shows. La Barcarolle sets up a full cultural program at the theater, renamed “le Moulin À Café” because of the particular shape of the building in which it is housed, the former town hall on Place Foch.
