Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Somme

Ancient town where were found the remains of the Gallo-Roman and prehistoric times, Dury is a welcoming small town of Somme. Only 5 km from Amiens, the town built on a plateau overlooking the Somme valley.

Long rural, Dury has combined authenticity and modernity. If agricultural activities including dairy, sugar beet, vegetable and cereal persist in the town, the service industries could develop.

However City Dury finds its originality in his castle, built in the center of the village, the first traces back to 1563. It has an important house, a caretaker house and a park, all in perfect condition.

Dury, a town often marked by successive wars, has recovered and now radiates from the top of his board across the valley of the Somme.
