Known as the City of the Three Steeples, Albert is located at 20 minutes from the camping. This strategic location was completely destroyed during the war by the air raids and the land fights. The population decided to rebuild three buildings as they were before: the basilica, the city hall (and its three steeples) and the train station.
In Albert, you can:
* Find The Museum of the Somme 1916 which is established in underground tunnel, 10 meters beneath the surface, evokes the soldier's daily life in the trenches during the Battle of the Somme.
* Start The Circuit du Souvenir.
* Visit The Basilica built in a neo-Byzantine style. Do not forget to have a look at its fantastic steeple and its magnificent statue of the Virgin Mary.
