The castle of Fallais, which dates back to the 13th century, was built by the lords of Beaufort. It was originally a simple square tower, surrounded by moats. According to ancient documents, this castle was destroyed by a storm in 1332.
In 1464, the castle came into the hands of the Duke of Burgundy, Charles the Bold, who extended the Burgundian Netherlands to the east. In October 1468, negotiations took place in the castle between Charles the Bold and Louis XI, King of France, about the city of Liège, which had been rebellious since 1465 and was supported by the French king.
During the siege of Namur in 1675, the castle was occupied by Louis XIV and his army. After his stay, the castle of Fallais was largely destroyed by order of Louis XIV.
In 1881-1882, the castle was completely renovated and rebuilt in the spirit of the medieval fortress. In 1936 it was converted into a retirement home, but a year later a fire destroyed the interior of the north wing and had to be restored again.
At the moment the castle is private property.
