This thread is a tribute to Liège (and its surroundings), where I lived from September 2009 to November 2017. For those of you who don't know it, Liège (pop: +/-200,000) is the center of the third largest agglomeration in Belgium (pop.: +/- 600,000), and the most important town in Wallonia, the French-speaking part of the country.
It was one of the first towns in continental Europe to become an industrial center, but has a history that goes back a lot further, most notably as the capital of the Prince-Bishopric of Liège, an independent country from the 10th to 18th century. The Cité Ardente, or fiery city, Liège has and has always had a strong life its own. To me it will remain one of the most unique cities I know, especially for one its size. And I will let you know why by posting one picture a day!
