It has some magnificent monuments to be proud of, such as the Basilica and the Abbey Palace. But otherwise, everything here is geared towards showing off the surroundings of the place. The Great Forest of Saint-Hubert and its infinite walking trails, the game park which honours the local flora and fauna, the ‘Domaine du Fourneau Saint-Michel’ which bears witness to its ‘industrial and rural past... and of course the annual deer bellowing mating call.
