  • The most beautiful villages of Wallonia

The village of Falaën, set on the slopes of a small valley in the Condroz area, proves quite enchanting with its pretty stone houses. The ruins of the Château de Montaigle, listed exceptional cultural heritage of Wallonia, are well worth a visit. Or jump on the Molignée rail-bike for a fun ride in the area.

A rural heritage

The houses, made of limestone, mostly date from the nineteenth century. Among the oldest buildings are the girls' school, the blacksmith's workshop and the former brewery. A few metres from there rise imposing corner towers of a castle-farm. The drawbridge was replaced with a three arches one.

The Château de Montaigle

Just 3 km from the centre are the impressive ruins of the Château de Montaigle. This former residence of the count in the 19th century, built on a rocky spur, is quite a romantic sight. Do visit its museum to learn more about the history of this medieval site.
