Fed by the waters of the Sambre and Biesme rivers, this entity, marked by its industrial past, has been transformed into a semi-residential region. It harbours elements of unsuspected nature in the loops of the Sambre, which are Natura 2000 protected zones.
Sambreville also boasts a wealth of culture, folklore and leisure activities. Many festivals are organised here: the Cavalcade d’Auvelais, an annual folklore procession, the Tamines carnival, the annual bonfire, the festivals of Wallonia, the festivals of the Sambre and river cruises.
In addition, Sambreville is home to outstanding sites such as the Breton lighthouse in Auvelais or the Cimetière des Fusillés, the cemetery holding victims who were shot in Tamines. These listed sites recall the tragic days of the Battle of the Sambre on 20, 21 and 22 August 1914. They are linked by a remembrance route along the RAVeL network.
