  • Completely renovated thanks to ERDF funds, the emblematic Spanish House becomes the UNESCO Heritage House.

    With its brand new ticket office and shop on the Belfry site, the House is an open window into the region's UNESCO heritage.

    Completely renovated thanks to ERDF funds, the emblematic Spanish House becomes the UNESCO Heritage House.

    With its brand new ticket office and shop on the Belfry site, the House is an open window into the region's UNESCO heritage. From the Doudou, through the Mundaneum, the Grand-Hornu site, the know-how of the bellringers, the Neolithic Silex de Spiennes mines, or the Mons Belfry, the public can now find all the information concerning UNESCO and its heritage in one place.

    Unique in Belgium, the House offers the general public and schools a portal to about twenty sites, buildings and intangible heritage recognised in the province of Hainaut. Furthermore, an associative and civic dimension is also at the heart of this beautiful project: the UNESCO Heritage House has a strong ambition to (re)put heritage in the hands of the greatest number of people. Open to experimentation, the venue will offer workshops, conferences and meetings in partnership with the Belgian Commission for UNESCO and various recognised sites.

    For citizens, artists and the roughly forty regional associations already active in this field, the House will provide exchange spaces and shared facilities in order to create a collective dynamic that is accessible to all.
    Reservations are required for meeting spaces: polemuseal@ville.mons.be
