Between city and countryside
The remarkable sculpture by Catherine Fourniau, in the heart of Dison, modernises the pretty square of Saint Fiacre’s Church. Titled L’envol (“Taking flight”), this pink granite and bronze creation is intended to be a symbol of peace, harmony and freedom, beautiful values extolled by the people of Dison seeking revival and dynamism!
However, Dison is also the birthplace of the famous poet Adolphe Hardy, who received an award from the Académie française. Now a Museum-Foundation, the house in which he was born opens its doors to you and narrates the poet’s life through various paintings, mementos and household objects. It is a touching visit that sometimes includes exhibitions.
A wide range of walks are an opportunity for tourists and local residents alike to admire the natural resources and superb landscapes of the villages of Andrimont, Dison and Mont-Dison; the tranquillity of the latter is only disturbed by the popular fervour of its carnival, held every year on the third Saturday of January.
The village will not fail to charm you, particularly during its Music Festival, which over time has become a highly significant event for Dison.
