Set on a slope of the undulating condroz countryside, Mozet emerges from the meadows, enshrined by the wooden crest.
Province : Namur
Commune : Gesves
In feodal times, no outer walls enclosed the village. Instead, three towers protected the village. One is enclosed within the courtyard of Mozets castle, another signals the Royer Farm by the Tronquoy creek, and the last is part of the "Douxflame" or soft flame farm. These large estates, completed by the church and presbitary, define the ancient village.
The small and partialy ruined hamlet of Mont-Sainte-Marie, facing Mozet on the oposite crest, will enchant you.
As there are no shops or restaurants in Mozet, head to Goyet, another hamlet, in the Samson valey. You will find restaurants and specialties.
Last tip: rain or shine, the Caves of Goyet are worth a visit, where archeologists will gide you within the home of Neandertal.
