In the West, it is crossed by the Meuse Hills, while in the East lies the vast and deep forest Woëvre; northwest and finally flows Chiers rise the foothills of Ribs Mosel, based on the Ardennes nearby.

Stenay was originally Celtic, Gallo-Roman town before becoming the 7th century Merovingian royal. Residence of the last Merovingian king Dagobert II, including a permanent exhibition traces the memory near the Tourist Office, "Stenay Lorraine", also called Asthenidum then Sathanacum the Middle Ages, was one of the strongest fortresses of the Meuse valley after Sedan. Stenay was successively owned by Godfrey of Bouillon, the Dukes of Lorraine and the Prince of Conde, who connected it to the Fronde, which resulted in taking and dismantling of the city, ordered by Louis the 14th in 1689.
