Montreuil-sur-Mer has rich offerings for history, literature and musical theatre buffs alike. Victor Hugo set part of his classic novel, Les Misérables, here. Perched on a hill, the town is surrounded by medieval ramparts. Their western flank provides the route for a pleasant walk with views over the poplar-filled valley, through which La Canche river winds.
