IntroductionNamur, the capital of Wallonia, straddles the Meuse and Sambre Rivers at the gateway to the Ardennes. An impressive citadel with 27 towers, it looms over the town from a cliff-top site. The citadel has a weapons museum, underground chambers and a scenic (and strategic) view of the surrounding countryside. The town has a nice cathedral (St. Alban's), a casino and a number of small museums (our favorite is the Groesbeeck de Croix Museum). Namur is 40 mi/64 km southwest of Brussels.
