The town of Gembloux combines twelve districts and is home to a remarkable architectural heritage. This includes, among other things, the remains of the town ramparts (12th century), the old Benedictine abbey which still has a Romanesque underground room, the Bailiff’s House (16th century), the belfry, Petit-Leez castle, the fortified farm of Falnuée and the feudal castle in Corroy (13th century), listed in 1965 and part of the outstanding heritage of Wallonia. The old Benedictine abbey, rebuilt in the 18th century, houses the University Faculty of Agronomic Sciences. Gembloux owes its specific role as Walloon Agrobiopole (agronomic science research centre) to the presence in its territory of the University Faculty of Agronomic Sciences, the Research Centre for Nature and Woods, the Agronomic Research Centre of the Walloon Region, the Higher Industrial Institute and the House of Agriculture and Rural Life. Its facilities available also enable Gembloux to lay claim to being a seminar and congress town. Waymarked footpaths reveal various natural sites in the entity, including the Grand-Leez municipal wood.
