Book town - Redu

Redu book town
In the heart of Wallonia lies a small town where every commerce is a book store, safe a few restaurants and caf├ęs. Its name is Redu and its nickname village des livres or book village.

Though the town traces its origins back some 1,100 years, it officially became a book town on Easter weekend 1984 when hundreds of book stalls lined up the streets for Redu's first book fair. The success was such that most of the booksellers ended up staying for good.

Here are some photos of my day trip to Redu....
