The advantageous position that Namur holds in the heart of Wallonia has marked it for more than two thousand years. Skilfully painting the main outlines of the rich history of his city, Norbert Bastin takes the reader round the different districts of the charming city on the Meuse river, introduces him to old Namur with its slate roofs, its baroque belfries, its mansions and its private houses. He then leads him to visit the villages of Greater Namur. Architecture, folklore, local history all feature in this abundantly illustrated book. A fine homage to the city that is now the capital of Wallonia and the seat of the regional institutions of the Walloon Executive and Parliament, but that has not lost its character as a town where life is pleasant.
