Dinant is a famous tourist centre occupying an outstanding site in the Meuse valley. The blue-roofed town is dominated by the onion-domed bell tower of its collegiate church and massive citadel. Dinant's name originates from the French word dinanderie (copperware). The town is also famous for its honey cakes and is the birthplace of such famous figures as the painter Joachim Patinir, Antoine Wiertz and the inventor of the saxophone Adolphe Sax.
