Visit Beauvais

A charming break among culture and nature

Beauvais is a grandiose city, brimming with culture and character, starting with the grand cathedral and the spectacle of the 50 intricately moving parts of its astronomical clock. Be inspired by the traditional upholstery techniques that have been mastered by local craftspeople and the poetic garden of André Van Beek. Also learn about Jeanne Hachette, a local heroine who used a hatchet to stop an intruder penetrating the city walls. Rewarded by a grateful city, her statue now faces the town hall and radiates across the square as night falls.
