Chimay
The Essential
The little town of Chimay lies at the foot of the "Hainaut boot", on the southern edge of Rance forest. The bridge over the River Eau Blanche offers a fine view of its famous castle. Chimay also harks back to Froissart, author of well-known Chronicles (14C), and Mme de Tallien, nicknamed Notre-Dame-de-Thermidor for having encouraged Tallien to overthrow Robespierre.
