Situated between Charleroi and Mons not far from the French border, Binche takes great pride in being the only town in Belgium - and indeed in the Netherlands - to retain intact a substantial proportion of its medieval ramparts including 27 towers. Now serving primarily as the market town for the surrounding region, little remains of Binche's once quite considerable textile industry apart from the manufacture of carnival costumes.

Binche Carnival tradition is one of most ancient and representative of Wallonia. Its famous « Gille » has been fascinating people all over the world. The reputation of this Carnival is due to the original and authentic character of Binche traditions: it has always been held on the feast traditional days, and the preparation within the families and the carnival societies involved have merely changed for centuries (the preparation already begins before the winter). Each year the Carnival of Binche attracts an increasing number of visitors. This event was named one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2003.
