The retracing of the steps of Arthur Rimbaud inevitably includes passing through Charleville-Mézières, the town keeping his memory alive.
On the banks of the Meuse River, there is the old ducal windmill dedicated to him and also the 'Maison des Ailleurs'.
Other landmarks include the monument erected in his memory in Station Square and Charleville Cemetry, where he was buried after the long adventure of the 'Man with the Wind at his Heels' came to an end at the port of Marseille.
The Ardennes celebrated the 150th anniversary of the birth of Arthur Rimbaud in October 2004.
Since then, the house of the Ardennes' 'enfant terrible' has become the 'Maison des Ailleurs', which you can go around and experience the atmospheres created by sounds and video evoking the different stages of the life of the 'Man with the Wind at his Heels'.
