Chapel Saint-Louis de Guémy Tournehem-sur-la-Hem (2)Built at the end of the 15th century and classified in 1913 as a natural monument, the Chapel Saint-Louis de Guémy was built by the great Bastard Antoine de Bourgogne in the flamboyant Gothic style (like the cathedral of Saint-Omer). It remained in ruins for a long time, but was restored in 1930. Indeed, Gallic druids would have practiced their cult there, and the Roman emperor Septimius Severus in the 3rd century would have made camp his army on the hill before passing in Great Britain. Saint Louis is said to have founded the cult of Our Lady of Grace, now venerated in Ardres. LA CHAPELLE SAINT-LOUIS

Tournehem and Éperlecques

The Guémilde forest

Once upon a time … A wooded valley, with white stone churches, medieval villages and charming windmills. A place where you could stop time, breathe, find the simplicity of healthy products made on the spot, listen to the birds and the rustle of leaves in the trees…

These forests weren’t always peaceful and restful. They have also been home to veritable war factories, and thehistory buff won’t want to miss a visit to the Éperlecques blockhouse, a huge concrete bunker hidden in a green setting. Strolling, relaxing and sightseeing will allow you to recharge your batteries in a soothing environment.
