Well located among Amiens, Paris, and Rouen, Beauvais is a charming and typical town in Picardy region.

Beauvais is a city in the northern French region of Picardy. The city's cathedral, dedicated to Saint Peter (Cathedrale Saint-Pierre de Beauvais), in some respects the most daring achievement of Gothic architecture, consists only of a transept and quire with apse and seven apse-chapels.
