De la Ville au Village


This is quite a challenging route on which you will discover the tourist woods and their chapels and countryside, go through Ragnies, the ‘Most Beautiful Village in Wallonia’, and explore the mediaeval city of Thuin. The Thuin belfry and its hanging gardens, the Biercée distillery, Chêne farm, etc. It goes without saying that there are many impressive sites along this walk. At the Maladrerie, a ‘potale’ and a chapel tell of the cult of Saint-Roch, who was prayed for to ward against the plague. In the centre of Thuin, the top of the climb through the hanging gardens offers a superb view over the Sambre and Biesmelle valleys. The paved streets raise the difficulty of the route. You then walk through the Grand Bon Dieu woods with its art and sports installations.
