The Château d'Havré is a beautiful, ancient building built just on the outskirts of Mons, in Belgium.
The castle was enlarged and transformed several times in the 12th and 13th century by its owners, notably the Enghien and Croÿ families. This superb seigniorial home, designed to be fortress surrounded by moats, delights its visitors with its quadrangle inner courtyard, its donjon topped with an onion-shaped dome and its ogival chapel.
Renovated by "Les Amis du Château des Ducs d'Havré", the site can now be visited and rented for private events.
