La Citadelle

This testimony of the past and former residence of the Counts of Namur, is a veritable open book on the evolution of the war. The citadel is a listed Wallonia Heritage Site and offers an unobstructed view of the town. You’ll be able to admire the impressive underground passages and visit the Terra-Nova Interpretive Centre. The view and the green spaces make the fortress a place much appreciated for walks. A tourist train is available, for those interested, to guide you around the site.

Les Vieux Quartiers

The old districts form somewhat a village in the town, with a rare and particular atmosphere, in a setting full of discoveries. To walk in its old districts is to go back in time. Completely pedestrianised, the narrow streets are dotted with architectural riches such as the belfry or the Saint Aubain Cathedral. A lovely walk which makes it possible to do some shopping or during which you can take a break by having a drink.

Le Musée Rops

In the heart of Namur’s old town where the artist Félicien Rops was born, a museum dedicated entirely to his work can be found. Here, you’ll discover the story of his life, his encounters, but also his creations like the famous Pornokrates also known as “The Lady with the Pig” (La Dame au Cochon).
