À Sommière

A - Sommière - The village

The village of Sommière lies on the limestone plateau between the Meuse valley and the Flavion valley, near Dinant. Visitors to the region should not ignore the heritage of this village, whose oldest houses are built of stone. The church and the clergy house date from the 17th century.

The path that runs alongside the ‘Del Marmol’ farm joins the valley of the Flavion, (a tributary of the Molignée), passing through prehistoric caves reached along steep paths on the right-hand slope of the valley in which tools fashioned by man have been found. It is said that this was also a hideout for resistance fighters during the Second World War.
