Old fortified house of Wéris
An ancient fortified house, a witness to the medieval past of the village, which became a presbytery and a large residence with a proven heritage value.
Facing the church, an ancient fortified house bears witness to the medieval past of the village. Its location, a stone’s throw from the church, indicates the importance of its status. The limestone and sandstone rubble walls are 1.60 metres thick.
The building has undergone numerous alterations, particularly in the 19th century, when it was transformed into a presbytery.
Today, this former fortified house appears as a large residence, whose heritage value was confirmed by its classification in 1976.
