Fallais Fort

Imposing lowland fortress built by the Beauforts in the 13th century with a long history of owners.

The estate then belonged to the Wesemaels, the Borseles, the Polheims, Maximilian of Austria, the illegitimate Baldwin of Burgundy and his descendants, and so on.

In 1468, the last meeting between the prince-bishop of Liège, Louis of Bourbon, Charles The Bold and King Louis XI took place in Fallais before the sacking of Liège.

In 1678, Louis XIV bombarded the northern and eastern wings.

Restoration work was carried out in 1882 by the architect Van Asche.
