Corroy-le-Château castle


Corroy castle dates from the 13th century and was built by the Vianden family to protect the south of the Duchy of Brabant.

This lowland castle built to the plan of the Louvre is considered to be one of the best preserved in northern Europe and is listed among the major heritage of Wallonia. With four corner towers, a chapel with ribbed vaults, a rather imposing entrance castle and an old system of ditches, ponds and water conveyance, this fortress looks impressively impregnable even today. Corroy castle, which has never been sold throughout its long history, currently belongs to the Marquis of Trazegnies, who still lives there. The interior was largely refurbished in the 18th and 19th centuries. The decoration, alternating between rare marble, furniture and marquetry as well as a great many paintings, contrasts sharply with the rugged outer walls and the seven towers.
