The old Boulogne still exists. Within its walls is still a lot of history. Walking the walls you realise how small thi city was. Within its walls a church, some palaces and other interesting buildings. Worth visiting.

I had no idea about the history of Boulogne-sur-mer until walking around this delightful promenade. Great views, lovely trees to give shade (much needed in July 2018) and has a real sense of history. It is 1.8 kms, so not a difficult walk.

We enjoyed our stroll and thought it worthwhile. We have visited the town many times,but only on this occasion have we completed the walk. We both enjoyed this, and after a morning in the market it completed our morning.
