Limont Tower stands in the center of the village of Limont, west of the city of Liège, in the province of Liège in the Wallonia region in Belgium. It is also known as the “Tour du Chevalier”, which translates to the Knight’s Tower.

Around 1150, the grounds of Limont Tower were bought by Libert de Warfusée for his son; the knight Robert de Limont. So the tower probably dates back to the late 12th or early 13th century. That’s all the historical info I was able to find, so if you know more, please mail me!

It is a tower house built out of flint with limestone corners. It had a barrel vaulted cellar and an entrance at the first floor level.

At present the tower is in a very ruinous condition. When I visited it, the two people who granted me access, were busy with some sort of consolidation work, I guess. And that is something the tower badly needs or it will just crumble away.

The tower is situated on the private ground of a house that is built against it, so it’s not accessible. But it can easily be seen from the public road.
