Tour Salamandre

Beaumont lies on a beautiful stone escarpment that overlooks the Hante valley. The area has been inhabited since the Roman era. The strategic placement and position of Beaumont on the border of the old county of Hainaut justified the construction of a fortified compound in the 12th century by Count Baldwin IV.

The Tour Salamandre, which stands out in the foreground of the landscape that you will discover, is one of the relics of this ancient compound, even if, in its present state, the tower dates back to the 16th century. As the town changed very little since the Middle Ages, Beaumont very much resembles the town that Napoleon discovered in 14 June 1815.
