The modern-day town of St. Quentin is located in the Picardy region of northeastern France on the right bank of the Somme River where it joins the Canal de Saint-Quentin. Unfortunately, it suffered heavy damage during World War I and was almost lost, but thankfully it has since been largely rebuilt.
While visiting St. Quentin, be sure to visit the 13th century Gothic-style church of Saint-Quentin, which was beautifully restored after the war, as well as the 14th century town hall, which can be found in the Place de l’Hotel. Also of note, consider checking out the Museum of Enomology, which boasts a collection of more than 600,000 insects, as well as the Musee Lecuyer art museum and the Parc Ornithologique, which is dedicated to the study of birds. In addition, keep an eye out for the many Art Deco facades found in St. Quentin – a result of the immense reconstruction after the war.
