Built on an impressive rocky spur, this exceptional heritage site has conserved traces of each period of its 2000-year-old history. Once a residence for the Counts of Namur in the Middle Ages, then transformed into a holiday home by King Leopold II, it is now a sought-out location for events, guided visits and walks in a verdant surrounding with spectacular views over the city.
