The Abbey of Saint Riquier Posted July 9, 2015


The Saint Riquier abbey church is a unique example of the evolution of Gothic architecture, combining elements belonging to the early, classical and flamboyant Gothic architecture. The facade of the abbey dates from the 16th century and is dominated by its single, windowless, 50-metre central tower, ornately decorated by numerous statues, embedded in a dense network of arches and lines.


The Abbaye of Saint Riquier is located few meters from the Relais du Beffroi.
