The fortified castle of Bouillon, the oldest vestige of feudalism in Belgium.

Visit one of the largest fortified castle in Belgium and embark on a journey through more than 1000 years of history !


Standing on three rocky peaks overlooking the Semois and the city, the fortified castle of Bouillon, with the maze of its corridors and its immense vaulted rooms, is considered to be the oldest and most interesting vestige of feudalism in Belgium.
 

The origins of the first fortifications date back to the 8th century.

He was immortalized by Godefroid, leader of the first crusade (1096) and confessed to the Holy Sepulcher who engaged the castle with the archbishopric of Liège to finance his expedition to the Holy Land.

Finally, under the wars of Louis XIV, it will experience major development work carried out by Vauban and will be occupied militarily until 1830.
