Trip Report Art Deco architecture along the English Channel

Jump to last reply

Most of the towns along the northern coastline of France were destroyed during WW2, but there is at least one notable exception -- the town of Mers-les-Bains in Picardy, which displays one of the most amazing collections of Art Deco and Art Nouveau buildings in France this side of Nancy.

I went to check it out the other day and I was absolutely not disappointed. Although it was perhaps not the best time of year to admire the town, I still found it amazing. For anybody driving around this part of France, I heartily recommend it. If you also want to have a delightful meal of local seafood, the best restaurants are in Le Tréport only 3 kilometres away.

Here is the photo report that I made: http://tinyurl.com/picardyartdeco
