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 famous castle of La Motte Baraffe will also delight visitors. This typical Tournai style building, was rebuilt in the late 17th century on the site of a 16th century feudal castle.

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