The Condroz, a region in central southeast Belgium, is bordered on two sides by the Meuse River
and on a third side by the Ourthe River
. Limestone, sandstone, schist, and clay are the primary components of the Condroz soil, and there are several caverns carved out through solid limestone hills by rivers that duck briefly beneath the surface, including the famed Hotton Caves
. Most of the land is occupied by farms and forest.
