Public gardens full of charm arranged in the bastions or around an old military building, vegetable gardens along the rampart walk on the top of the ramparts, Vauban Nature area and bird sanctuary in the old exterior fortifications... The small fortified town of Gravelines is the beauty of nature! The fortified star of Gravelines has preserved its bastioned enclosure intact.
