St Omer French town Pas de Calais




Saint Omer is one of the main towns in Northern France.We like the weekly market it is a short drive from the port of Calais.

St-Omer is a town in the Pas de Calais area of France. The town was built on marshlands in the 7th century.

It has been awarded town of art and history for the 800 year old cathedral. The cathedral took 300 years to build.You can visit the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Saint-Omer on Enclave Notre Dame. It is open more or less 9 til 5 there are guided tours in July and August

We just walked round by ourselves. Just round the corner from the Cathedral is the tourist office which has a nice tea room.

Inside the Cathedral
