History of Beaumont, Hainaut in photos

A small historical reference

Geography: Beaumont is a city and municipality of Wallonia located in the Belgian province of Hainaut, on the border with France.

The municipality consists of the following districts: Barbençon, Beaumont, Leugnies, Leval-Chaudeville, Renlies, Solre-Saint-Géry, Strée, and Thirimont.

The Tour Salamandre, an 11th-century donjon, is the most remarkable remains of the ancient fortifications of Beaumont. It can still be visited and holds expositions of the town's history. The old castle, in which Napoleon spent a night before going to Waterloo in 1815, has been separated in two parts; one houses the town hall and the other contains a catholic secondary school, Paridaens.
