100 years ago, the Val de Somme witnessed the bloody battles of the First World War. The region is still commemorating the sacrifice of these young australian soldiers who fell far away from their home defending France. Today, the inhabitants of the Val de Somme show their support for the australian people.
Who said that virtual reality was reserved for video games?
In the Val de Somme, technology serves history ! Did you know that in the Middle Ages, Corbie sheltered nearly 300 Benedictine monks in a large royal abbey radiating across Europe? After the damage of the French Revolution and the ravages of the Great War, only some vestiges remain, like the abbey church. So difficult to imagine a refectory where there is now a parking!
The tourist office of the Val de Somme offers a unique and unusual guided tour: visit Corbie Abbey in virtual reality. After watching for a few minutes, a 3D reconstruction film of the abbey, you will be equipped with a tablet or a virtual reality headset. Follow your guide through the streets of Corbie and let yourself be carried away! You will then embark on a journey back in time, in the heart of the former Benedictine abbey of Corbie ... Immersion guaranteed!
