La Louvière: Attractions and more...



There are around four hydraulic boat lifts on the old Canal du Center and connects the Meusa River to the Scheldt. These double elevators dates from 1900 and were designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1998. Then there is some of the best collection of Idel Lanchelevici’s works on display. There are also a number of churches and chapels which dates back to the 13th and the 16th century.

There are some housing complex which was built for the Bois-du-Luc coal workers during the 19th century which has been restored as a historic place. One of these houses can be visited with other museums that retrace the history of the coal mining industry in the Center region.

One can visit the Carnival of the city which is called Laetare, in Latin, which means to enjoy. It is for three consecutive days from Sunday to Tuesday and takes place in the middle of Lent. There is also the Brulage des Bosses, which means the burning of the humps celebration, where a puppet is dressed as a Gilles and is burnt to symbolize the end of the carnival and the beginning of the new life.
