Fumay - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Ardennes

Former capital of the slate, Fumay is surrounded by slate. Located in a loop of the Meuse, the scenery is beautiful. There are beautiful walks in the forest to discover. Gastronomic specialty : white pudding.

Behind the winch of the old slate St. Anne, at a place called the Chestion, was a Roman camp or perhaps another building when you consider that chestion castle stands... In 1909, a researcher, Mr. Bourguignon, found burnt stones to this place, therefore, may the fire of a vanished building. In fact, at the roof of the building, there are mid- side, a kind of flat rocky form, perhaps originally square, and it is from this platform, especially in scree to Belgium as these stones are burned.
