After walking up the Grande rue, it's good to get a rest in this pleasant square. It's right by rue de Lille for bar/restaurants, and near Notre Dame basilica and the Chateau Musee.

We walked through the old town walls and were charmed by the displays from French fables, whilst my language skills aren't strong, it was easy to look at and you could easily see the meaning of the outdoor garden type exhibits.

Has benches so you can sit down for a rest. It's very pretty and well maintained. Near the other 'attractions ' in boulogne.

Inside the haute village of Boulogne sur mer these gardens are a theme setting that are displayed by the townhall inside the walled village of Boulogne. Free and excellent to see.

A surprising find in the old town, this display of the artist's take on some well known films was a cheerful and amusing find. From Alice in Wonderland to The Shining, there was something for all ages to enjoy.
