Saint Riquier is located in the Somme department of France’s Picardie region. This small town was instituted as the result of the Benedictine abbey built there, and today the abbey is still the main attraction which takes pride of place in the central square. It is a magnificent example of Gothic architecture with a square tower and vaulted interior. The abbey also houses a collection of frescoes and relics. There are also the remains of a Romanesque church, the Centula.
