The Saint-Omer region is worth a visit, particularly thanks to its picturesque Audomarois marshland, flooded by the sea for centuries before being shaped by man. This 3,400-hectare territory exudes a secret atmosphere: calm reigns and the landscapes are serenely beautiful. It is also rich in abundant flora and fauna. A total of 700 kilometres of watercourses stripe the marsh, of which more than a hundred are navigable and can be navigated by boat. In the heart of this unique place, the emblematic cauliflower is cultivated. In 2013, the Audomarois marshland was awarded the Man and Biosphere label by UNESCO.

But this land of water surrounded by forests and meadows is also a land of history. Saint-Omer was in turn a religious city, a trading centre and a garrison town. It has remarkable monuments that bear witness to these different eras. The cathedral that dominates the city and the ruins of the medieval abbey of Saint-Bertin are the most majestic examples.
