Waterloo

(Walloon Brabant, Belgium)

2018-08-05

Waterloo is a Walloon municipality in the province of Walloon Brabant, Belgium, which in 2011 had a population of 29,706 and an area of 21.03 km2. It is north of Braine-l`Alleud, which is the site of the Battle of Waterloo, where the resurgent Napoleon was defeated for the final time in 1815. There is a memorial in the form of a statue of a lion (looking towards France) on a hill, with 226 stairs, called the Lion`s Mound. It was erected on the famous 1815 battlefield located south of Waterloo, and was completed in 1826. A fee is no longer charged to climb the hill, which has become a major tourist attraction in the region. Other attractions related to the battle are the Battle Panorama Mural, Wellington Museum, and the Roman Catholic Church of St. Joseph, where Wellington is said to have prayed before going into battle and where British and Dutch plaques commemorating the fallen are now to be seen. We visited the Lion`s Mound, the Mémorial 1815 museum and the Waterloo Panorama painting in the summer of 2018.
