- The most beautiful villages of Wallonia
Come and discover the charming village of Montignies-sur-Roc, rich in suprises, in the heart of the Hauts-Pays Nature Reserve.
Known as the gem of the Haut-Pays, its origins go back more than 1,000 years. The village, dominated by the Notre-Dame church, owes its name to its position: it was, indeed, built perched on a rock.
The top and bottom of the village are connected by a network of footpaths and staircases. Other notable features include its former mill, the Petite Honnelle valley (a botanist's Eden), a man-made cave, the Chapelle du Rosaire, the old cemetery and its chapel, Notre-Dame de Cambrai.

The is a picturesque location at the heart of the Hainaut and well worth a stop.
