Promenade de la Vallée de l'Helpe

Promenade de la Vallée de l'Helpe


This hike starts before the sumptuous Macon Château-Farm that was built in 1616. By walking up by the ‘Couture’, you will reach the Imbrechies peak, protected by its château and the coal forest. From this magnificent view, you can see a dozen Belgian and French spires. Nearby, is the 40-44 Lieutenant Cook war museum. You then enter the valley of the Helpe Majeure’s source, which then flows along the three lakes to join the old Imbrechies foundry and its furnace. Here you are again in the village of Macon with its many 'potales’ or small chapels, its Wicher Square and magnificent lime trees.
