The Château de la Follie takes its name from its wooded setting, follie being a synonym of feuillée, meaning “leafy”.
A 16th-century house built in the style of a mediaeval fortress, the château was restored in the early 19th century.
The octagonal Gothic chapel, dedicated to St Christopher, has a vaulted ceiling with painted ribs.
Four windows contain 16th-century stained glass, the only complete set of windows of this kind in a chateau chapel in Wallonia. Each is divided horizontally into three sections: the first depicts a scene from the Passion, the second shows members of the family who commissioned the window, and the third shows their respective coats of arms.
Listed building (07-07-1976)
Chapel listed as an exceptional heritage site of Wallonia
