Namur seems to be a myriad of squares and little side streets running off from the more modern shopping centre. This square in front of. rather impressive building, is the home to some unusual bronzes, one of which is a snail!

Medium size square but still manage to give a feeling of space. The seeing itself is quickly done but goes well with a visit of the city. During winter, it is where the Christmas Market takes place. The occasion gives a very good atmosphere.

Usual European town square but attractive and has some nice bars and cafes. Whole town is pretty and worth a visit.

This square is for you to pass by. If you have been to Grand Place in Brussels, you may not think high of it. Continue walking to the west, you will find beautiful pebbled streets to stroll along.

I often park in the Beffroi garage under the Place d'Armes because it is easy to go the Pedestrian Only part of Namur from there. But the Place d'Armes has very little charm in itself. I much prefer the Place du Marche aux Legumes nearby,...More
