1 The arrest of Moneuse
Moneuse the bandit (see ride 10) was arrested at Quévy-le-Petit. Tried and sentenced without overwhelming evidence after a botched investigation, Moneuse, who would always plead his innocence, was guillotined on the Place de Douai on 18 June 1798. Moneuse remains rooted in popular culture of the Hauts-Pays as evidenced by the festival at Beria in Quévy. The character still fascinates, between the image of a lawless robber and poor innocent sod.
2 Sars-la-Bruyère and Colfontaine woods
This is one of the green lungs of the region. The wide paths are wonderful for cycling. And in the spring, daffodils carpet the woods. Moneuse is believed to have committed the Cense Populaire attack on 3 December 1795 (in the village of Colfontaine).
3 Bougnies
The native village of Louis Pierard a great writer and journalist. He wrote the biography of Vincent van Gogh. The outdoor theatre and the first Belgian youth hostel were erected on his initiative in his late 1930s.
