A medieval fortress

in the heart of nature

The Château de Moha is located at the confluence of the Mehaigne and Fosseroule rivers, surrounded by a natural park. Its history dates back to medieval times, with legendary origins linked to the County of Moha. The castle was built by the Counts of Moha and the Prince-Bishops of Liège to defend the region. Later, it became a prison and strategic fortress under the Prince-Bishops.

Although the castle walls are no longer threatening today, they were once reputed to be impregnable. However, in 1376, the inhabitants of Huy succeeded in taking the castle by deception, marking the end of its glory days.

In addition to its historical importance, the Moha site is home to a rich fauna and flora, preserved thanks to work carried out by the Parc naturel des Vallées de la Burdinale et de la Mehaigne.
