- Architectural heritage
Built on top of a rocky outcrop overlooking the village and the Semois Valley, the medieval ruins of Herbeumont castle offer a splendid panorama of the river and its meanders.
The first stones of the fortress were laid by Jean of Rochefort, of the House of Walcourt. From one century to another, it will belong to other families: Orgeo, Marck-Rochefort, Stolberg and Löwestein.
A strategic position
Building it on this peak meant the castle could only be accessed on one side. In the 15th century, towers were added, its ramparts strengthened... It would sadly be destroyed nonetheless by French troops on August 21, 1657.
