At the confluence of the Meuse and the Ourthe, Liège, a river port and the third largest town in Belgium, is in the middle of a basin surrounded by hills. The town is lively and its inhabitants very hospitable. Go to the citadel for a view over the town. The Old City includes the palace of the Bishop Princes, rebuilt in the 16th century. Its archways with 60 curved columns surround the large courtyard. The market square holds several cafés. It also has the town hall and the Tradition fountain. The Saint-Barthélemy roman church has a pewter baptismal font. The Saint-Paul cathedral protects the gold shrine of Charles the Bold. This leaves the Saint-Jacques church, which has a flamboyant gothic style. In the evening, give preference to the Outremeuse district and cafés, together with the restaurants in Roture Street.
