The Roman Païs | By bike, on foot or by car
Exploring the region's country roads and paths is to cross extraordinary landscapes, green and rolling plains or hills with sinuous paths, as well as a number of large old farms of typical regional architecture.
All of which lies in a welcoming rural setting that is dotted with chapels that are so characteristic of this meridional region of Walloon Brabant.
Internationally famous theatre, exhibitions, local markets, agricultural fairs, carnivals and folkloric events delight the region's inhabitants and tourists throughout the year.
For those who enjoy sports, the region is bursting with quality sports facilities, letting you enjoy hiking, mountain biking, golf, tennis or horse riding.
After hard work, comes the reward... In Roman Païs you can enjoy gastronomy thanks to its numerous quality restaurants. Not forgetting the varied and delicious specialities: the warm "al djote" tart from Nivelles, the "crastofé" from Ittre, buckwheat pancakes with cheese, regional beers made using local traditions and many more regional products can be enjoyed in the area.
