The Hamptay area

Description

Go back to the village centre by the small path that was built so that visitors can walk back to the village after visiting the caves. Or, if you’d rather stroll around for a while, take the narrow path that runs alongside the Lesse river and takes you to the Hamptay neighbourhood, just before the Church Square (Place de l’église).

The Lesse takes you back to the village, the village to which the river gave its name… The etymology of the word han is almost certainly connected to the meander that the river forms when it runs through the village. It’s probably the same term that is found in a number of localities in the Semois Valley that have place names ending in ‘han’ : Frahan, Bohan, Poupehan…
The Lesse endowed the village of Han with the wonderful caves which have made its renown. An exceptional gift of nature that changed completely changed the destiny of this small countryside village…
