Franchimont castle is an 11th-century medieval fortress built on a rocky outcrop dominating three valleys north of the Ardennes, about 8km from Spa.
The current remains of this ancient stronghold of the former Principality of Liège bear witness to a spectacular medieval fortified castle adjusted at the start of modern times.
The 11-12th century castle constitutes the centre of the fortress, which is encircled by a large wall with artillery dating back to the early 15th century.
The castle is a rare example of the evolution of defence systems during the Renaissance, with its blockhouses and their underground entrances forming one of the major attractions of the visit.
