Huy Travel guide
Huy : Michelin's recommendations
Huy, at the confluence of the Meuse and Hoyoux rivers, is huddled at the foot of its collegiate church and fortress. The town once boasted four wonders: a Gothic bridge (rebuilt in 1956), the collegiate's rose window, the Grand-Place fountain and Huy castle. Its strategic location resulted in numerous sieges and destructions. Huy produced famous 12C Mosan goldsmiths such as Renier de Huy and Godefroy de Huy. In 1095, Peter the Hermit preached the First Crusade here.
