An exceptional monumental site in Wallonia, Montaigle stands on a rocky spur in a romantic setting whose magic will take you back to the time of the knights.
A visit to the ruins of this imposing castle, once a count’s residence (14th century) and the archaeological museum will open a window on an extraordinarily rich medieval world.
The 100 m2 museum evokes the history of the site and the monument, presenting a thematic and chronological exhibition of objects discovered on the site (crossbow bolts, cannonballs, tools, pieces of crockery, medals, coins, stained glass, paving stones, slates, jewellery, etc.). It also presents the architecture of the fortress and the problems posed by the rescue of an endangered monument.
