Location and orientation
Picardy is a former administrative region composed of the departments of Somme, Oise and Aisne. It is now part of the Hauts-de-France region. If a large part of its territory is devoted to agriculture, it also has several cities with a particularly rich heritage such as Amiens, Beauvais, Compiègne, Laon or Soissons. Its coastal area, along the Somme estuary, is very popular with tourists.Easily accessible cities
The main municipalities of Picardy are well served by transport from Paris, some by the TGV or by the TER for the most part. A car will certainly be necessary to fully enjoy your stay if you plan to go to the Baie de Somme.
Destination for architecture enthusiasts
Picardy is home to some of the most beautiful Gothic churches in Europe. The one in Beauvais is particularly famous for its sublime medieval clock but also for having once been the largest building in the world. Notre-Dame de Senlis is known for the refinement of the statues on its portal.Castles with a mysterious atmosphere
The most impressive civil building in Picardy is the Château de Pierrefonds, an imposing fortress erected by Louis d'Orléans and then entirely renovated by Viollet-le-Duc. Former royal residence, the castle of Compiègne is also worth a visit.
It is in Picardy that we find the commune with the shortest name in France! It is the small village of Y, in the Somme valley.
