Le Chemin de la Bourlette


Starting from Bourlette Tower, the last 12th century remains of Saint-Médard church which used to be a bell tower, belfry and fortified tower, the route twists through a semi-urban setting.

The most rural and woody part will be a surprise to many. It seems incredible to have preserved these locations a few hundred metres from a main street. The mining past is also present with the headframe, a typical emblem of coal society whose slap heaps beside the site are now covered with flourishing vegetation. Take the time to gather your thoughts as you stroll through Collarmont cemetery. At the end of the walk, you will go near the source of the Haine, which gave its name to Hainaut province.
