Mouffrin Castle in Gemenne and Ry Castle are both in Hamois, and continue to be in the possession of the noble Lynden family.
Multiple other castles, still owned and inhabited by other noble families, are spread all over the municipality. One of them, the Castle of Skeuvre, still owned and inhabited by the de Beaudignies family, is noticeably known as the "Spirou Castle", after Franquin got inspiration from it to create the Champignac castle that is depicted in these comics.
