FOSTEAU

This castle was first erected in the 14th century. The buildings you can admire now date from the 14th until the 19th century. It was around 1380 when Wauthier de Semousies became owner of this domain when it was donated to him by Countess Johanna van Brabant. His successors were the lords of Zwenne, de Marotte, de Henry and de Jamblines. They built several other buildings around the castle. Inside, you will find one of the most beautiful gothic halls. The castle became a protected monument in 1979. Since 1980, the castle inside became an exposition of antique furniture. Everything you see you can also purchase. There is no entrance fee and you find the castle on the road N559 close to the town of Charleroi.
