The castle of Ecaussinnes-Lalaing is one of the rare fortified castles on the heights of the Hainaut. It was built in the 12th century and was transformed into a residence at the end of the 15th century. The monumental chimneys in the weapons room and in the grand salon are remarkable. If the ground floor (prison cell, Gothic chapel, old kitchen, weapons room) are reminiscent of the Middle Ages, the upper level calls more to mind the 17th century.
