Castle of Bois-Seigneur-Isaac

30km from Brussels, the Bois-Seigneur-Isaac Château, listed as ‘exceptional real estate of Wallonia’, was converted from a feudal fortress in the 18th century. Its classic French-style facade is adorned with wide arched bay windows and topped by a triangular pediment. There is a round tower with arrow slits, a reminder of its days as a feudal fortress. The castle, which probably dates back to the 12th century, was one of a series of fortresses protecting the County of Hainaut from the expansionist intentions of the Dukes of Brabant. Behind the chateau, you can take a stroll around a charming French garden with an English-style park at the end. There are many wonderful trees to admire, several centuries old. For five generations the Bois-Seigneur-Isaac Château has belonged to the Snoy family. It was home to Jean-Charles Snoy et d'Oppuers, a co-signatory of the Treaty of Rome which marked the birth of the European Union. Did you know that the village of Bois-Seigneur-Isaac takes its name from Isaac of Valenciennes, a member of an illustrious Hainaut family? In the late 11th century he planted a wood, which still exists today, 500 metres from the chateau along Route de Lillois.

The Récollets Church

The single-nave church of the Récollets in Nivelles in Walloon Brabant, also called SS Jean and Nicolas, will impress you with its architecture and history. In fact, it is the church of a convent of Franciscan monks which was attached to it. Taken together, it constitutes the only monastery complex preserved in Nivelles, and is also one of the rare examples of Franciscan architecture extant in our regions. The Récollets Church is part of a remarkable architectural complex built from 1524 onwards using funding provided by Charles V and his aunt Margaret of Austria. According to her wish, the monks – who were established in Nivelles 20 years after the death of Saint Francis of Assisi (1226) – were attached to the branch of the 'Friars Minor Récollets' (Frères mineurs récollets), who lived in an austere and retired way. After the disturbances and demolitions of the 1580s, the church was rebuilt and experienced a long period of prosperity and an incontestable spiritual radiance until the end of the 18th century. Since the departure of the last monks at the beginning of the 19th century, the building was allocated for a variety of uses: hospital, hospice, Royal secondary school and courthouse. The process of listing the monastery buildings is underway. The church, which is heritage-listed, was restored for worship in 1960 and its restoration was completed in 1972. The play of colours of the blue and white stones highlights the great simplicity of the edifice, typical of the Brabant Late Gothic style. The soaring bays and powerful buttresses elegantly punctuate the single nave of this vast sanctuary. The only decorative feature is the Flamboyant Gothic style tracery that adorns the tops of the windows. The interior space, profound and luminous, leaves an impression of soberness and vertical élan. The keystone of the choir is adorned with an escutcheon with the arms of Charles V. A bay in the south side wall houses the reconstruction of the shrine of Saint Marie d'Oignies.

The Simone Tower (Tour Simone)

The Simone Tower, also called the Devil’s Tower and located close to the collegiate church Sainte-Gertrude of Nivelles, was for many years the premises of the League of Crossbowmen (Serment des arbalétriers), one of the civilian bodies charged with defending the ramparts of the city. Renovated in 2006, this tower is now the last testimony to the medieval walls which were constructed in the 12th century. There were no fewer than eleven towers and seven portcullis gates. The rampart was composed of a mighty fortification 2.50 m thick, surrounded by partially flooded moats outside, and reinforced with 8 m-wide embankments inside. In the tower, the guardroom, vaulted and pierced by arrow-loops, now houses a 3 dimensional map of the city of Nivelles as it looked around 1600, defended by the rampart and its moats. The tower is now accessible as part of a guided visit of the city of Nivelles.
