In Belgium there are many castles.
This post is about Modave Castle, located in Liege Province in Belgium.
The Modave Castle was built in middle ages, but was partly demolished and then restored in the 17th century, giving it the facade of today. The oldest part of the castle (the donjon – the keep), is built at 60 meters above the Hoyoux River valley. The terrace of the castle offers a magnificent view of the nature surrounding the valley.
The rooms of the castle are richly decorated, with remarkable ceilings, beautiful paintings and sculptures, furniture and tapestries dating from the 18th century.
