About
Poilvache is the largest still existing medieval fortification in the Meuse Valley. Located at less than 5 km from Dinant, the site of Poilvache lies on a calcareous spur overlooking the river and the picturesque village of Houx. The 13-15 century walls and several towers protected the "Town" and the "Castle" of Poilvache (2,5Ha "intra muros")

Incredible views across the Meuse!
This is also the place where Hitler's forces crossed the Meuse first to inflict large-scale defeat to France! The medieveal castle offers locally brewd beer (quite strong) and explanations on what must have been a hard life in those days...

There's really allot to see when visiting the ruins of Poilvache. You pay only €2 per person and you get a reading guide explaining everything about the ruins. I enjoyed visiting this attraction. Dogs allowed. Only toilet, no sink!
