In the 11th century, the Moha Castle, which was then the residence of the Counts of Dasbourg-Moha, was transformed into a formidable fortress. Later it became the property of the Prince-Bishops of Liège, and then a jail for political prisoners and a fortification in charge of controlling the town of Huy and blockading the merchants. The inhabitants of Huy who laid siege to the castle and took possession of it in 1376 were very unhappy with this policy. The history of the castle is then unknown for a long period and during the 18th century, it gradually fell into ruins ...

The ruins of the castle were then bought by the State in 1889 in order to stop their degradation. The site was classified in 1980.

Since 1992, the non-profit association "Les Amis du Château féodal de Moha" has been organising events (novena, storytelling walks, etc.), themed activities and leisure visits that punctuate the life of the castle and allow visitors to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the Middle Ages.

Located in the heart of the Burdinale and Mehaigne Valleys Natural Park, the castle site extends over a length of 130 metres. The remains, most of which date from the 12th and 14th centuries, bear witness to the extend of the castle before its destruction.

In addition to its architectural heritage, the natural site around the ruines of Moha is also very rich in flora and fauna.
