Discover the castles of Picardy Wallonia in great fanfare at prestigious events ...
The princely land of Picardy Wallonia is the family seat of the princes of Lignes. This illustrious family of the Belgian nobility dating back to the 11th century owes its name to the village of Ligne, located between Ath and Tournai in Picardy Wallonia. Beloeil and Antoing castles still belong to them today and are visited in style during certain festivities. The castles of Attre and Enghien are also favourite settings for prestigious festivals.
6,000 amaryllis flowers deck out and transform the princely residence with a discreet and temporary living fragrance for nine days. From the grand staircase to the apartments of the field-marshal, from the ambassadors’ room to Epinoy’s, the sculpted bouquets of amaryllises will arrest your senses. Admission fee.
