Lying on the borders of the Province of Namur, near Hainaut and Walloon Brabant, Sombreffe boasts a very old history.

This was a crossing point from Ancient Times, as can be seen from the Bavay-Tongres Roman road that crosses the north of the entity.

Sombreffe comprises four districts with a rural tradition. One of them, Ligny, has gone down in history as the site of Napoleon’s last victory against the Prussian troops on 16 June 1815, two days before his famous defeat at Waterloo.

The architectural heritage of the commune still comprises a number of old buildings of great interest, including the feudal castle of Sombreffe, listed in 1971 and part of the outstanding heritage of Wallonia.
