The Essential
The town has merged with Dinant and is overlooked by the ruins of Crèvecoeur castle ruins. The marvellous landscape artist Henri Blès was born here. He painted in the style of Patinir and his paintings unusually include a little owl that he used as his signature. Many of the artist's works can be seen in the Musée Provincial des Arts Anciens du Namurois in Namur.
