6 km from Jodoigne , Melin is one of 5 white villages shrouded by the trees of its overgrown gardens. The village lies in an area of rich fields, an open and hilly countryside dotted with woods.
Province: Walloon Brabant
Have you seen the Brussels town hall on the Grand Place? The Gobertange stones it is made of where extracted here. The village is made up of this luxurious material, with toutches of localy produced bricks. The Gobertange creek wanders lazily though the village, dams dotting the gardens with ponds and bridges. its banks drained by high rows of willows and poplars. Wandering through the remaing cobblestone paths that start from the small triangular square, you will discover farms large and small, loosely clustered around the church.
