In the bed of the narrow valley of Crupet and its tributaries, buildings ranging from the 16th to the 19th century are gracefully nestled in a quiet environment.
Province of Namur, Assesse township
Throughout high street and low street that connect through scenic trails, the village is composed of sandstone and limestone, clinging to the valley slopes. Everything is rapture and authenticity facades, gables and outbuildings, driveways, front gardens, outdoor living ... Belgium's best preserved medieval dungeon arises, still surrounded by a moat. A little higher up, the site of St. Martin Church and presbytery will attract your attention. The priest Gerard has prepared a surprise: an artificial cave depicting the life of Saint Anthony of Padua.
Designed as a gate between the land of the living and of the dead, the chambers are crudely painted with moral scenes chosen from the life of the saint. This place of worship is also known as the Devil's Cave, named after a cast iron statue guarding the entrance to the graveyard...
A valley village of mills, the village is surmounted by the fertile lands of the Condroz plateau. Hamlets and villages surrounding Crupet are a charming places to ride or walk by.
