MERS LES BAINS

  • Saint Martin Church: Saint Martin Church was built by the talented Amiénois architect Edmond Douillet, whose reputation as a church builder was already great. He preferred to draw inspiration from Christian basilicas with Byzantine domes.
  • Notre Dame de la Falaise: also called Notre Dame des flots, was inaugurated on August 18, 1878. Its 7-meter-high plinth features three bas-reliefs – by a local sculptor, Marie-Josephe Cotelle Clère – representing the Patron Saints of the 3 “sister cities”; Saint Jacques for Le Tréport, Saint Laurent for Eu and Saint Martin for Mers les Bains.
  • Belle Epoques villas: With the discovery of sea bathing and its therapeutic benefits, Mers experienced spectacular development. At the end of the 19th century, the railway brought the first vacationers called “Baigners” to our shores. These, from the aristocracy and the rich bourgeoisie of the time, would settle there by building the first second homes of our modern world.

AULT

First of a low height, about thirty meters, the cliffs rise gradually to reach more than eighty meters south of the village.

The cliffs first bend slightly at the level of the town center which is built on the sides of a valleuse (dry valley) whose main street occupies the bottom.

They bend again at the level of the Bois de Cise, which allowed a wood to form and then a hamlet of villas to settle. From the top of the cliffs, the view is exceptional.

To the south, you can see the entrance to the port of Tréport and, much further, the tip of Ailly with its lighthouse which is located beyond Dieppe.

To the north, we see the low fields, Cayeux, the Baie de Somme and beyond the dunes of Marquenterre. The view thus extends over nearly 60 km of coastline.

Come and walk in the footsteps of Victor Hugo, who stayed there in 1837, and discover his ecclesiastical belfry of the Saint-Pierre church dating from the 14th century.

SEAL BAY

Seals rest out of the water at low tide on roosts (emerged sandbanks at low tide) to regenerate their energy, to give birth and nurse the young, to moult…

You have to be very careful, if you approach them too closely, they get scared and go back to the water, sometimes abandoning the non-emancipated babies who cannot survive a premature separation.

The Picardie Nature association watches over the colony, ensures the prevention of walkers, kayakers and riders so that they respect a minimum distance of 300 meters and treats baby seals abandoned at the care center.
