Situated at the confluence of the Meuse and Sambre rivers, the bustling capital of Belgium's French-speaking Wallonia region, Namur has fine museums and churches, a casino, and an abundance of cafes and restaurants. The town's most prominent sight is the citadel, now demilitarised and open to the public. It plays host to a beer festival at Easter. Namur also has a distinctive 18th century cathedral dedicated to Saint Aubain and a belfry classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. An interesting custom is the annual Combat de l'Échasse d'Or (Fight for the Golden Stilt), held in September. Two teams, the Mélans and the Avresses, dress in medieval clothes while standing on stilts and do battle in one of the town's principal squares.
