At the summit of an undulation the silhouette of the castle of Fosteau appears. This imposing fortress from the 14th century still has got 4 towers. The lords of Semousies, Sars, and after them the lords of Zwenne, Marotte, de Henry, de Jamblines and de Aoust developed the living quarters around the central donjon.
