Virton
The Essential
Capital of the Gaume region, Virton, bordering France's Lorraine region, is renowned for its mild climate. This former forge town grew up around a colonnaded church built of pretty brown stone. This traditionally Romanesque region - unlike its neighbour, Arlon - houses the ruins of the legendary Orval Abbey, one of the most powerful Cistercian monasteries in the Middle Ages.
