Built on a rocky spur, most likely in the 13th-century, the château d’Écaussinnes-Lalaing still has a few original buildings, in particular the north-east corner tower and the west wing.
The latter includes the pentagonal tower in which the lord and his family lived, the main hall, with two 16th-century fireplaces and windowseats, and the former kitchens.
The lower courtyard still has part of its original enclosing wall and porch-tower.
The square west tower and the semicircular tower date from the 14th century, the chapel from the end of the 15th century, the south wing and the porch-tower from the 17th-18th century and the fine vegetable garden is from the 18th century.
