Kasteel de Broqueville
This castle is located in the center of Postel opposite Postel Abbey. Baron Stanislas de Broqueville inherited almost the entire center of Postel in 1865. He commissioned this castle to be built between 1857 and 1861. He did not call in the help of an architect, but designed the castle himself. He is said to have been inspired by castle Leclaireau in Ethe in Belgian Luxembourg. In 1921 the castle was enlarged with the addition of two crenellated south towers. Over the centuries, the castle has been renovated and restored several times. At the time of the First World War, the castle was in the hands of Count Charles de Broqueville, then Minister of War. Today Robert de Broqueville is lord of Postel. He lives in the castle with his wife. The castle is built in a neo-traditional style.
