Pure coincidence. I totally forgot about Vaalser Berg which i only know because a friend studied in Aachen and mentioned the "Dutch mountains" once or twice.

The canton that has Rouen in it?


(Sorry but I've come off the graveyard shift and I've got a mental blank of what the canton's name is off the top of my head and all I can remember was the city).

If it's not being renovated ... is it being built?

You did say 'no' to Jube's query 'castle being renovated'. So the two replies together lead me to deduce that it isn't a castle.

Therefore is it a town/city wall?

Maybe I should have re-phrased my castle question to citadel or fortress then, after reading P'ter's question? That might be better then castle perhaps.

P'ter: I can't find a good map giving me the names/routes of the rivers. Isn't the fact that it is in Pas de Calais (Dernok's question) clearer than what you ask? If you want a river, the river Canche is the nearest.

I know have three correct PM's from Jube, P'ter and Dernok respectively, so...

It is indeed Montreuil sur Mer. A bit misleading as it is not situated on the seacoast what "sur mer" could imply, but it is not far from the coast. I had hoped the renovation of the rampart or city wals would have made things a littel less clear but you still have done very well.

Montreuil was the setting for much of the early part of Victor Hugo's novel Les Misérables. The novel's protagonist, Jean Valjean, served as mayor of the city, and also owned a large factory. The city was the setting for much of the early conflict between Valjean and the novel's antagonist, Javert. It was also Fantine's hometown.

Well done all!
