Abbeville : Michelin's recommendations
Near the sea, dynamic and commercial, Abbeville remembers its customs officer, Jacques Boucher de Perthes who found that the first people of Abbeville were unrivalled in their spear making skill and their Mammoth hunting. The historical achievements are varied. The town is proud of the prehistoric period named after it and remembers Dutch tradesmen, the Van Robais, who set up a textile factory there in the 18C, with the agreement of Colbert.
