Château de Grandchamp (Belgium)

Abandoned ruinous castle with a rather sad history. The roots of the Grandchamp nobility in the region date back to the 15th century. Legend has it that the lord of Grandchamp was captured during the revolution and died a horrible guillotine-death while the castle was under construction. Nowadays the château of Grandchamp is nothing less than a ruin. The roof of one of the wings has collapsed, every window has been bricked and nature is slowly reclaiming the castle.
