Neufchâteau - architecture
From Neufchâteau, the well-informed visitor will no doubt be able to spot the town hall, courthouse, decanal church and perhaps the Griffon tower with its octagonal roof, shale walls and its oubliette, the only remaining sign of the mediaeval castle which gave its name to the city.
Visitors can also enjoy strolling down the narrow, sloping and often picturesque streets which run down to the Neufchâteau stream, as well as the areas of Faubourg and Terme which developed outside of the castle grounds, around the rocky headland which the castle dominates.
Hydraulic power produced the motor power required by numerous small industries over the years. The Neufchâteau river which passes through the area never stops. Following it from the point where it enters the town to the point where it leaves.
Created in 1622, the Grandvoir ironworks did not play a hugely significant role in the iron and steel working industry in the region of Luxembourg under the old regime. However, they were closely linked to various different factories by their owner.
In 1852, the iron working industry was abandoned and the ironworks became a mill. A sawmill was also added. The old industrial buildings currently serve as an agricultural shed.
The centre of the village of Hamipré has undergone a specific development. Two old buildings, both worthy of interest, stand virtually right next to each other here. They have managed to retain the shape and charm that history has imposed upon them. One of the buildings is a church, topped with an elegant bell turret and the other, separated from the church by a narrow passageway, is a quadrilateral farm building which is none other than a former Recollect convent from the 17th and 18th centuries which became a hospital in the Middle Ages.
Lahérie has managed to retain the traditional character of an Ardennes village. Its farms have altered very little in appearance. Up until the French Revolution, this village played a more important role than the number of its inhabitants would lead one to believe. A court of justice was located here and the mill attracted farmers from all across the region.
