The castle of Monceau is a seignorial estate from the 17th and 18th centuries.
17th-century gates provide access to the gate house which comprises a 17th-century porch and two wings ending in a tower. The appearance of the original 14th-century castle is not known.
Pillaged in 1554, it was rebuilt after 1607 and became the property of the Trazegnies, the Hamals and then the de Gâvres.
In the 19th century, the 18th-century west wing was found striking due to its classical, Louis XVI-style layout.
The addition of this wing allowed for the creation of a courtyard. Two 18th-century buildings are found on both sides of this courtyard. The residence is surrounded by a superb 67-hectare park designed by an architect from Versailles.
The prestigious setting of the Château de Monceau can be hired for meetings, receptions and events.
The castle exterior and its park are open to visitors.
