Castle from Namur

Jurgen Schalck

Namur may not be the most attractive Belgian city but it's still a nice place to visit and an excellent base for exploring the valleys around it which are of great natural beauty.

Over the centuries Namur has been one of the main strategic points of the whole of Belgium, on account of its geographical position where the Sambre flows into the Meuse. Namur is also historical town whose foundation goes back to the Roman conquest. Unfortuantley it played a role in many wars and many of its historic buildings have been distroyed over the years.

The main attraction of the city is the Citadel, but you should also take your time to discover the picturesque old quarter of Namur. Passing through its narrow streets and passageways, you will be surprised by its rich architectural history, dating mainly from the 18th Century.
