Mozet: yesterday's land, today's stone
Mozet is surrounded by greenery: meadows, groves and gardens surround this charming little village with a medieval feel.
Take a 2.5-kilometre architectural stroll through Mozet.
Beautiful stone houses with slate roofs characterise the old centre. Perched on a hill, the church dedicated to Saint Lambert is at the heart of the village.
On the banks of the Tronquoy, the peaceful stream that runs through the village, two imposing farms with closed courtyards used to be the main focus of agricultural activity. One of them, the Ferme de Royer, has a listed Romanesque tower. You can admire the dominating Château up the Rue du Tronquoy. An imposing quadrilateral made of limestone rubble was built in the second half of the 17th century. Today, it is used as a holiday centre.
Next to Mozet, the hamlet of Goyet is also worth a stop: the caves and caverns, as well as the Demoiselles, classified rocks at a place called Les Forges, will make your discoveries complete!
