Château de Fallais
You cycle on this route through the old town of Couthuin, where many buildings date from the 17th and 18th centuries. Marneffe is a village with beautiful 19th century farms. The Church of the Immaculate Conception is also very beautiful. The current three-aisled church with its tower integrated into the nave dates from 1846. There is also much more to see on this route. The Chateau de Fallais is an impressive low-lying fortress that was founded in the 13th century.
