What to see in these picturesque Walloon villages

Clermont sur Berwinne: the 17th century Saint-Jacques le Majeur, the 19th century town hall, the stunning architecture of the nearby village and the fortified farms. Why not make a detour via the Val Dieu abbey or the Remember Museum?

Limbourg: this former fortress was built along the Vesdre river and its architecture listed as exceptional cultural heritage of Wallonia. Add to this the Saint-Georges church, the justice court of Avó, the castles, the fountain dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and the stone table giving the place a medieval vibe

Olne: look for the Saint-Sebastian church spire, topped with slate, to find the heart of the village. The streets reflect the trades of the past still: earthenware makers, cloth weavers, nailsmiths...

Soiron: the buildings are built of rubble stone, bricks and limestone. Worth a look: the Saint-Roch church, 2 castles, former rectory and cemetery. Don't miss the dryer pierced with 160 holes, used when the village grew thistles...
