Dinant, and it was because of VT, that I wanted to visit this Town.
Dinant is a lovely small town in the province of Namur, located 90 kms south of Brussel's, in a picturesque valley of the River Meuse.
Long and narrow, the Town is squeezed between the River Meuse and the high rocks that overlook it.
Coming into Town, I could see the citadel on the high rock overlooking the town and the river, and also the Collegiate Church of Our Lady.
Saxaphone's were on display everywhere.
Adolphe Sax, the most famous inhabitant and inventor of the saxophone herald's from Dinant.
Always plenty of musical action and a lot of cultural events are held here in his memory.
