Introducing La Roche-en-Ardenne
If you’re arriving from the west, La Roche makes a sudden dramatic appearance, its evocative ancient fortress ruins crowning the town’s central knoll above a tight curl of the verdant Ourthe Valley. At the castle's base, most of the town's facilities are closely huddled along 500m of main street variously called Rue Purnalet, Place du Marché, Rue de l’Église and Rue Châmont. Locally the town is almost as well known for its smoked hams as for its castle, kayaking and WWII decimation.
