Dating from the 13th century, the castle of Herbeumont is one of the most impressive Belgian major heritage sites in Wallonia. Destroyed in 1657 by the troops of Marshal Henri de La Ferté-Senneterre, its ruins were renovated in 2010.
Its majestic towers offer a superb view of the Semois and the village, and entry is free so make the most of it!
AU COEUR DE L'ARDOISE
The Commune of Herbeumont once had several shale mines from which the stone used to make slate was extracted.
A vestige of this activity, which has now disappeared, the Morépire slate quarry plunges you 25 metres underground and gives you an insight into the daily life of the scailtons (slate miners). An unmissable experience!
