Maybe we are spoilt but the "rempart" didn't blow us away. Well preserved and maintained but that is it. Inside the remparts Boulogne sur Mer isn't very interesting. If you want to see impressive city wzlls, go to Montreuil which is closeby.

To be able to wander the full circuit of the city walls is not demanding-just a 30 minute stroll. But just think about what you are walking on, a Roman city-pretty unbelievable.

Very nice view over the city, the cathedral, and the surroundings. The promenade is evenly used by locals with their dogs and tourists takings pictures. There are several entrances to the promenade, so do not hesitate to wander in the old city and randomly find...More

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.

I can recommend this beautiful stroll on the historic battlements of Boulogne-sur-Mer. It is totally free and you'll enjoy some beautiful sights and views on the old city. Be warned though, they close the entrances in the evening, so make sure to check beforehand if...More
