Les Hortillonnages Amiens - Somme (80) - Hauts-de-France - France

Les Hortillonnages : In a serene secluded location like this one, far from the sounds of the city, you can only penetrate buy boat. Originally marshland, 2000 years old, where the richness of colours rivals the diversity of birdlife, in the heart of Amiens, irrigated by the rivers Somme and Avre, they require from the Hortillon, (gardener of the Hortillonages) constant maintenance because they are made of mud and alluvium extracted from the rieux.
