Fall under the spell of the Town of Wolves and... Join the pack!
Welcome to La Louvière, the town of wolves! La Louvière was built in step with its economic and industrial development. Coal, porcelain, steel and river transport pass on an extraordinary heritage to us today. The mining town of Bois du Luc, its mining village, its hoisting sheave chassis, its museum take you back a century in time... Boat lifts and the canal in the Historic Centre invite you to get a change of scene, with superb trips to be taken along the waterways up to the impressive giant Strepy-Thieu boat lift! The Keramis museum testifies to the time when La Louvière produced exquisite dishware! Be astonished by the quality of La Louvière: the Engraving and Printed Image Centre, the lanchelevici museum. The Louvièrois’ pride is their folklore: every year, the Laetare gets the wolves’ hearts beating to the rhythm of carnival tunes... Every 3 years, Décrocher la Lune transforms the town into an urban opera featuring Sancho, the Louièrois’ favourite giant.
