Yellow castle

Description

This takes you right opposite the château jaune (yellow castle) which belongs to the Royal Donation. This small castle was built in the 14th century by the first Lord of Villers. It towers above a superb 18th century royal farm with walls in half-timber work on your right. Brick has quite commonly replaced the cob that was made out of clay and hay.

The gable is marked with the date, and a 16th century stele ensconced in the wall represents two well-known biblical characters: Moses and Aaron, holding the tablets of Law. This magnificent farm also belongs to the Royal Donation. A noteworthy fact is that more than half of the grounds in Villers-sur-Lesse belong to the Royal Donation. The grounds and buildings that belong to the Royal Donation are the property of the Belgian State which is not allowed to sell them all or in part.
