Eglise Saint-Martin de Mons-Boubert
Reception : Until December 31
Once known as "Vimeu cathedral", this remarkable 14th century church is dedicated to Saint Martin. It was built on a mound with a very thick, stone retaining wall. It has an octagonal bell tower covered in slates with a very tall spire. The church was extended in 1765 and now has three naves and a chancel ending in a three-sided chevet. It has lovely (listed) woodwork and a fine pulpit. The confessional was made by a carpenter from the village. The church also has superb stained glass windows, perfectly restored. Around it are sixteen little private cemeteries, all beautifully tended.
