Saint-Omer and the Audomarois region

The Saint-Omer region, a Pays d'Art et d'Histoire, with its UNESCO-listed marshland of over 3,000 hectares, is an exceptional land where culture and nature meet. Part of the Audomarois marsh is still the scene of traditional economic activity linked to the town's history.

On the town side, discover Saint-Bertin Abbey, one of the oldest and largest in the region, Notre-Dame Cathedral and its 13th-century Gothic tower, La Coupole History Centre and Saint-Sépulcre Church, dedicated to the tomb of Christ and the first crusade to Jerusalem.

The Opal Coast

On the Côte d'Opale, you can enjoy beaches such as Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, go hiking and walk along the cliffs of Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris-Nez. You can also discover Boulogne-sur-Mer, France's leading fishing port, and Nausicaá, Europe's largest aquarium. Take the opportunity to visit the Parc Naturel Régional des Caps et Marais d'Opale. Finally, take the time to visit Calais, with its Lace Museum, belfry and dragon. As the main crossing point between the UK and France, Calais is also the "Official Capital of the Opal Coast".

Remembrance tourism in Pas-de-Calais

With numerous memorials, military cemeteries, interpretation centres and museums, remembrance tourism is very much alive in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, where the memory of the Great War is still very much alive. These include the Artois-Arras battlefields, the Vimy Memorial, the Wellington Quarry, the 14-18 Memorial, the Living Museum and the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette necropolis.
