The city of Huy is one of the few towns to have preserved, in its urban planning and architecture, the traces of its medieval past.
The “grand place” with its many streets that meet is the current urban center and former economic hub. The collegiale at the foot of the site of the former castle, replaced by a military fort in Dutch times, is the religious and historical center, for it was from here that the ancient town developed along the Hoyoux.
As a cloth-making and metallurgical center, Huy also produced quite a few works of art, a large proportion of which have been preserved in a particularly rich communal museum. In addition the treasure of the Collegiate Church offers visitors a series of major works of Mosan goldsmithery (12th-13th century).
