This route takes you through the surroundings of the village Maissin. This area is beautifully situated in the triangle between Dinant, Bouillon and Rochefort. Here you cycle through the beautiful vast and green landscapes of the Ardennes. What more could you want if you love cycling and nature?
The river Lesse rises in the area you cycle through during this trip. Embedded in the loops of the river you will find small towns and villages full of beautiful sights and ancient legends passed down from generation to generation. The town of Paliseul is located between the Lesse and the Semois, on a plateau with deep valleys. The chapel Saint-Roch is a nice spot to admire. Two large ash trees and an ancient lime tree surround the extraordinary stone and slate chapel built in 1636 in the center of the village. A peculiar charm emanates from it. The chapel was built in honor of Saint Roch, who had saved the inhabitants from plague.
Other beautiful places are the listed churches of Opont and Our and the bridge Marie-Thérèse in Maissin. Here you will find the charm of the Ardennes. A wonderful, authentic region to discover by bike.
