Barbençon: at the foot of its lake
A land of history, the life of the village is inseparable from the seigneury of Barbençon.
From its illustrious castle, the vestiges of the entrance gatehouse and the high surrounding walls remain.
On this former fortified promontory, surrounded by an island of trees. a neoclassical residence was erected and now reflects in the waters of the lake.
Beyond this precious architectural heritage, the hike through the Barbençon area will allow you to admire not only its beautiful lake and majestic trees but also one of the last remaining native yew locations in Wallonia!
The association Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie (The Most Beautiful Villages of Wallonia) oversees a network of 31 villages, bearers of a strong territorial identity and reflecting traditional architecture. It is committed to promoting the rural, cultural and natural heritage of Wallonia and is a part of the development of local and responsible tourism.
